Harris Hill Ski Jump, Inc. is a 501C-3 non-profit organization. Between 2005 and 2008, the hill was completely re-built to comply with FIS (International Ski Federation) standards to qualify Harris Hill to host internationally sanctioned events. In 2012 it hosted the first ever FIS Cup Tournament in the United States.

The Organization of the Event

The ski jump is organized entirely by volunteers. It takes hundreds of of people to put on this two-day tournament which is made possible by the generous support of the community through sponsorships, cash donations, and in-kind donations of time, expertise and materials.

Brattleboro Outing Club

For most of its long history (until 2003) the ski jumping competition was presented by the Brattleboro Outing Club. Harris Hill continues its association with the Brattleboro Outing Club, which in 2012 transferred ownership of the hill to Harris Hill Ski Jump, Inc. The two groups share a rich and colorful history of ski jumping in Brattleboro.
