Bellin to Sponsor 2016 Pine Mountain Ski Jump
Annual event draws international competitors, 20,000 spectators
IRON MOUNTAIN, MICH. — Bellin Health is returning as the proud presenting sponsor of Upper Michigan’s premiere ski jumping event.
The 2016 Bellin Health Pine Mountain Continental Cup Ski Jumping Competition will be held Feb. 19-21 at Pine Mountain Golf & Ski Resort. The event draws local and global competitors — jumpers from the United States, Germany, Austria, Poland, Norway, Turkey, Switzerland, Canada, Slovenia and the Netherlands are scheduled to participate in this year’s event.
Nearly 20,000 spectators annually attend the ski jump event, taking in the competition and enjoying tailgating, live music and a festive atmosphere.
Bellin has sponsored the ski jump since 2010. The health system’s support helps fund the event while continuing Bellin’s ongoing efforts to extend goodwill to its Upper Peninsula friends and neighbors.
“The ski jump is a significant international event, but it’s also very important — and a great source of enjoyment — for the local community,” said Linda Roethle, Bellin Health vice president of regional business development. “We are happy to be a part of this event and proud to be its title sponsor.”
The Pine Mountain Ski Jump is one of the highest artificially created ski jumps in the world. It is part of the Kiwanis Ski Club.
