Jumping Event

2019 JUMPING EVENT, Killington, VT

September 7-8, 2019

Click here for registration details.

This fall the annual jumping event will be held at Killington Mountain Schools Bag Jump Facility on Saturday and Sunday, September 7-8, 2019. The KMS Bag Jump is a new world-class four-season airbag facility, located just over a mile up the road at the base of Killington Resort’s Superstar trail. This jumping event is an excellent way to begin your freestyle career or even improve your skills in moguls. It allows you to learn how to become more aware of your body in the air, and what movements affect you during approach, take-off, performing the maneuver, and landing. The most basic and simplest maneuvers will be experienced first before adding more difficult ones. Athletes will first work to master tricks in the trampoline facility and then continue their progression toward mastery as they head to the bag to practice those maneuvers.

This clinic is open to members and non-members, over age 16, in any discipline. Check out the Jump Event Facebook page for photos and videos of previous jumping events. Grab some friends and join us for a fun and educational clinic for any ability level!
