Ski Jumping Collections Questionnaire
Do you have, or know of, a significant collection of information, photos, artifacts, and/or memorabilia relating to the
sport of ski jumping in North America? We're attempting to locate and describe collections that may be of historical
interest to those who love this sport.
Much of the preserved history of ski jumping is in private hands, often collected and maintained by private individuals
who were once active jumpers, by the children and grandchildren of former jumpers, or folks who were fans of the sport
and its athletes. Many of these collections are in the hands of people who are getting on in years, and could be lost
forever within a few years. Some collections may be owned by various ski clubs.
Although it would be wonderful to have a physical facility large enough and properly climate controlled to accept
donated collections or items, and a staff to do proper preservation and cataloging, we don't have such a facility at this
time, and can't promise we’ll have a facility to enable us to accept donated memorabilia in the future.
HOWEVER ... we do want to identify collections that exist today, and provide a comprehensive listing of them on this
website, along with contact information if the owner of the collection is willing to accept requests via e-mail, US mail, or
by phone. If they’re housed in some location that functions as a museum, we’d like to know all about it.
Please use the form below to identify and describe your own collection, or that of your club or of another individual. We
will contact each collector individually, and will NOT publish information on private collections without explicit
permission from their owners.
