Norje Ski Club is the oldest, continuously open ski club in the United States.  The club was started in 1905 by a group of Norwegian men. Most lived in Chicago and came out to Fox River Grove to ski jump. They created cottages on our club grounds to give them a place to stay while they were working on building up the club grounds or just having fun ski jumping. Over the years, men and women of all nationalities have joined the club to experience the thrills and enjoyment of ski jumping.  Learn more about the club’s fascinating history at NorgeSkiClub.com.
