NEGAUNEE, Mich. (WLUC) - It’s Friday morning and preparations are still underway for the 136th Annual Ishpeming Ski Jumping Tournament.

Thursday’s winter storm brought heavy snow for crews to clean up. As of 7:00 a.m. Friday, groomers were still maintaining the hills.

Ishpeming Ski Club member Dick Ziegler says his team has been at the U.P. Nordic Ski Complex since 10:30 p.m. Thursday.

He tells TV6′s Tia Trudgeon that open training, originally scheduled for 8:30 a.m., will be pushed back to 10:00 a.m. He adds that the group is hopeful that the rest of the activities will follow the schedule as planned.

Crews are still out at the U.P. Nordic Ski Complex Friday morning preparing for the 136th Annual Ski Jumping Tournament following Thursday's winter storm.

Gates open for spectators at 3:00 p.m. at the U.P. Nordic Ski Complex.

Parking is limited and will cost $10 per vehicle, per day. You can park your car at Negaunee High School and take a free shuttle to and from the complex.

Admission is $20 at the gate.
