Silver Mine Hill

In 1969 Silver Mine Hill was opened as a 70-meter jump as home to the Eau Claire Ski Club, Flying Eagles.  Eau Claire has a rich heritage of ski jumping and this site is home to the Silver Mine Ski Jump Invitational each January.  The event brings spectators from around the United States and is truly a spectacular event!  Although the hill is mainly used as a winter attraction it is a beautiful location for a spring, summer, or autumn hike and picnic!  A must-see while you’re in the Eau Claire area, it is highly recommended that you take a gander at the vast Silver Mine Hill.

Country Jam USA

Country Jam USA is one of the summer’s hottest tickets with great lineups and a wonderful summer, concert atmosphere.  A mid-July annual event, Country Jam USA brings spectators from all over the Midwest!  If you’re in town during the summer this event should be on your list of things to see!  In addition to great country music, the festival holds campsites for all visitors as well making it much more than a music event!
