Anyone on the East side of St. Paul has probably seen the ski jump off of 494 near Lake Drive. I always thought it was never used, but they do still use it and have events.
I've been in contact with the group that runs it, and we've been able to work out a date that we all can go and photograph ski jumpers. It will be at night - 7pm.
The night we are able to have a meetup there is Friday, January 31st.
Bring your tripod, warm clothes and get ready to have some fun in the snow. You can check out their website at:
Directions to the jump and clubhouse are here:
