USA National Masters Championship
40 Meter Ski Jump

Dartmouth Vale de Tempe Ski Jump
Hanover, NH
February 13, 1983

Twenty three ski jumpers, Old Boys between 27 and 60 years old from six eastern states, gathered in Hanover to contest the second annual National Masters Age Group Ski Jumping Championships. The Old Boys, a mix of regular competitors and a handful of experienced skiers who hadn't jumped for a few years, were joined by nineteen younger jumpers. (Only the Masters results are shown below.)

The first National Masters Championship was held in 1982 in the Central Division of USSA, in St. Paul, MN. Unfortunately these "National" championship events were virtually regional competitions with only two competitors traveling to St. Paul from other divisions in 1982 and none making the long trip to the east in 1983.

For the 1982 season, the USSA had reduced the minimum age for Masters ski jumpers from 32 to 27, and somehow the three age groups changed from 1982 to 1983. The Hanover competiton used 27-34, 35-45, 46 and up. ( We have no explanation for the change in the second break which had been at 49/50 but was moved down to 45/46.)
