The backlight and speed of rotation makes it too difficult to positively ID all jumpers. Some of the spectators include Ed Goulais, Greg “Crasher” Motschenbacher, Jim Moultrup and Tony Weaver.

This was the first world-class water ramp, and the name Nordic Valley changed on June 29, 2005, to Wolf Creek Utah Ski Resort
