The annual New Years and Masters competitions have suffered with a diminishing number of jumpers in the U.S. and conflict with important events in Steamboat Springs and Park City. The 2013-14 event in Lake Placid involved competitive jumping on the K-90 hill and exhibition jumping by younger skiers on the K-48 and the fine new K-20. It was a night event, jumping under the lights, and a steady rain didn't dampen the spirits of the jumpers on three hills or of the assembled crowd of spectators.

"We did have a meet on the 29th under the lights which despite that it was a Soaring Saturday format (not a sanctioned meet) had a good field of about 10 skiers with Andrew Bliss winning a great 3 rounder in the pouring rain and our little guys jumping the 20 and 48 between rounds to a crowd of about 2300 screaming people due to Dave McCahill's great announcing. Big fireworks exhibit: A great night!"
