Women ski jumpers Q&A follows documentary film

LAKE PLACID – The Lake Placid Center for the Arts will present the new documentary “Ready to Fly,” which chronicles the U.S. women’s ski jumping team’s fight to be recognized as an Olympic sport, at 8 p.m. Sunday.

Immediately following the film, members of the team will be available for a question-and-answer session with the audience.

Tickets are $10. All proceeds from the event benefit the LPCA and USWSJT.

“Ready to Fly” is a film about leadership and sacrifice, pluck and determination. It follows 2009 world champion Lindsey Van and the rest of the team as they fight to make their Olympic dreams come true.

This presentation is made possible with the support of Hoffman Auto.
