Ski jumpers rock!

I heard that ski jumpers are never more than ten feet off the ground... it's just that the ground falls away at the same pace they drop out of the sky. Watch the red lines where they land. The jumpers start up the ramp at a place so that they will land around the red line ("K-point") where the hill is the steepest. If the wind picks up and they jump too far, they could get hurt if they landed on the "flat."
