Earlier this year Jeff Roberts and I started a company building mini jumps. The mini jump has been an essential training tool for teaching beginner jumpers. Our headquarters in Dow, IL has had a mini jump since 2007 that has lead to the development of numerous jumpers including national, regional and state records. All 7 of the skiers on Lake Richard have been ranked in the top 10 nationally in their careers, and they all learned to jump on a mini jump. Top ski schools such as Coble Waterski School and Bennett' Ski School each use a mini jump to teach new jumpers. Just ask April or Jay their thoughts on the importance of teaching on a mini jump.
We saw a need to build these mini jumps and get more of them across the country. Teaching jump skiing in a safe manner is crucial to the long term development of a skier. We wanted to build a proper jump that looks and feels just like the real thing. Our aluminum frame, fully height adjustable, fiberglass surface mini jump is built to teach generations of skiers how to jump. We are taking all the guess work out of the equation and offering a finished product ready to be anchored down. With my degree in Mechanical Engineering and Jeff's years of experience in the jumping world, we have built a product that will impress you.
We sold our first jump to Bennett's ski school where it will be used and tested like no other place. If you want any more information please visit our website: https://www.minijumpramp.com/
You can also head down to Bennett's to try it out for yourself!
