Upper Peninsula Holiday

February 3, 2011 - Theresa Proudfit
My favorite Upper Peninsula holiday is beginning. The Giant Pine Mountain Continental Cup Ski Tournament is February 12th and 13th this year. Ten countries have confirmed and approximately 50 jumpers will be arriving. If you have never been to a tournament it's definitely time to check it out.

This is an annual event that can't be missed. Old friends come into town and I always make new friends from different countries. Walking the through the parking lot you feel the excitement of the crowd and have many opportunities to sample different foods and beverages from the friendly fans.

The ski jumping is outstanding. I'm always amazed by the talent of the athletes that compete in the tournament. I'll spend the majority of my weekend standing on the side of the hill waiting for the announcer to say "Springer Come". Hopefully I'll see you out there.
