Norge Ski Jump Postponed

The 118th Annual Norge Annual Winter Ski Jump Tournament has been pushed back to the weekend of Feb. 11-12.

The unseasonably warm temperatures have meant that it hasn’t stayed cold enough for Norge to make the snow needed to cover Norge’s ski jump and hill. Norge has put together an informative Q&A about their decision on their webpage.

The rescheduled event runs from noon to 4 p.m. on the new date, and the gates open at 11. Admission buttons that have already been bought are still good for the new dates. The buttons, which can be bought online by clicking here, are $20 in advance and $25 at the door. Children 12 and under get in free. Click here to learn more.

The Norge Ski Jump in Fox River Grove, which opened in 1905, is the oldest operating jump in the nation – and after 118 years, the annual winter tournament has spawned a lot of traditions. Our friends at Naturally McHenry County have distilled them all into a blog post that will teach you how to Norge – you can read it by clicking here.

  1. I think Lake Geneva must be had to cancel their snow sculpture week too.

    Oh well is hosting a very nice event at Hickory Hall 2/11

  2. Too bad. A very nice event. But, according to weather forecasters a lot of very cold weather coming this way which will help this event.

  3. Whats a couple weeks to wait for Jaeger Bombs?…always a good time there.

  4. Can this be blamed on the hot air emanating from our rotund Illinois governor and his Democrat pals?
