On Tuesday, the 14th January 2014, the regional ski jumping contest, which is part of the third edition of FIS World Snow Day, took place in the Westernberg Ski area Ruhpolding.
35 pupils from primary schools from Reit im Winkl, Ruhpolding and Siegsdorf tried to do their best – true to the motto “EXPLORE, ENJOY, EXPERIENCE”.
The trainer team with Lorenz Wegscheider tried to do the best to defy the difficult snow conditions. With a lot of effort, they achieved a wonderful and inspiring contest.
This contest is part of the DSV-Nachwuchsprojekt „Auf die Plätze, fertig…Ski!“ and was organised by the German ski association, the Bavarian ski association and by other regional ski clubs.
After getting their numbers and dividing into groups, the children tried their first jumps on mini-kickers and demonstrated their skills furthermore in a ski-fun-parcours with slalom gates, compression elements, portals and pump organs. The best athletes solved a start ticket for the Bavarian final on 5th March 2014 in Gmund near Tegernsee.
All of the children had lots of fun by sniffing into skisports and certainly the one or another has defected a new passion.
