Salisbury Bank recently made donations to the Salisbury Winter Sports Association in support of their efforts to make Satre Hill the official site for the 2011 Junior Olympics. The honor of hosting this event was contingent on replacing the wood frame ski jump with a new steel structure.
This winter SWSA will unveil the new community funded, Olympic-size ski jump and host for the first time, the coveted USSA (United States Ski and Snowboard Association) Junior Olympics in Ski Jumping and Nordic Combined competition.
Rick Cantele, President and CEO of Salisbury commented, "SWSA has long played an integral role in the fabric that makes up the Salisbury community. The Bank is pleased to help support their efforts to bring the US Junior Olympics to Satre Hill."
SWSA is an all-volunteer organization dedicated to promoting Alpine and Nordic Skiing in the northwest corner of Connecticut. For 85 years they have hosted traditional Nordic ski jumping during its annual February Jumpfest at Satre Hill. This year's Jumpfest will take place February 11-13. The US Junior Olympics in Ski Jumping and Nordic Combined will be held February 22-27.
