    5 stars & 5/10 hearts. All right!! I really enjoyed this one! Chuck was really nice, and I liked seeing the whole gang together. Horn was a great addition, and I loved the skiing and winter stuff thrown in. Also, the whole thing with Nancy's identity was just interesting. And the climax, oh my! The whole plot was unexpected and pretty cool! 5 stars & 5/10 hearts. All right!! I really enjoyed this one! Chuck was really nice, and I liked seeing the whole gang together.

    Every girl needs to go through a Nancy Drew phase at least once. For me, that was when I was in 6th grade and read...I don't even know how many of these books. At least eight, I think.

For me, that was when I was in 6th grade and read...I don't even know how many of these books. At least eight, I think. This one sticks out in my mind the most because over the course of her ski-related escapades, Nancy taught me something that I still consider really important: how to signal an SOS with a flashlight after you've managed to escape the abandoned cabin in the middle of the woods where The Bad Guys tied you up and left you for dead. The books are full of her doing awesome stuff like that, by the way. In one book, she gets tied up on an airplane and reaches back into her pocket for her lipstick, which she then uses to write a backwards SOS on the window of the plane (and then closes the blind so the people inside can't see it) In another one, she and her friend Bess get tied up (Nancy spends about 50% of her mystery-solving time getting tied up and stowed away somewhere) and left in a toy warehouse, so they use a scrap of metal to cut the ropes, and then find a chemistry set and use it to make fake smoke so the guys gaurding the door run into the warehouse and then Nancy and her friend get away. When you're twelve years old, that sounds pretty awesome.

    Tried to read a Nancy Drew book a few years back and it was all "you can't go home again," but when I was indexing them last week I noticed I had an original and a rewritten volume of The Mystery at the Ski Jump, and I thought it'd be fun to compare the two. I've done that with some Hardy Boys mysteries where the only connection between the original and the rewrite were a few names; the plot had been entirely changed.

I've done that with some Hardy Boys mysteries where the only connection between the original and the rewrite were a few names; the plot had been entirely changed. In this case, however, they were essentially the same; the rewrite was missing a bit of color and a few quips, and added another award (for skiing) to Nancy's insanely large collection. Both versions send her out on the ice for a partners skating competition that she aces, despite the fact that they invented the performance on the fly, without one rehearsal. *sigh* Although actually I got more irritated with Nancy's perfection as a kid than I do now (I always preferred Trixie Belden). One thing that interested me is that both versions introduce Bess with the line, "Bess loved sweets and worried little about her weight," and, although she's the one who cries over Nancy's survival once, I didn't notice that Bess was particularly hysterical. Most of the new volumes I got as a kid, Bess worried considerable about her weight, and fell apart right regular, which is one of the reasons I preferred the older ones I'd track down at my grandma's. I guess those changes went through in the early '70's. Also noticed that the original writer knew more about skiing than whoever did the rewrite; where the original has her pushing off with her poles, the rewritten version has Nancy leaning her poles against a tree and apparently leaving them there before skiing off to do a jump! But on the whole I enjoyed it -- and was irritated by it -- in pretty much the same ways I was as a kid. So I guess you can go home again, so long as you're in the right mood when you head in that direction!

    Oh boy oh boy oh boy. The ski jump mystery is fun! Not because anything with a ski jump is a big part of the plot, and not exactly because I LIKE the plot . . .

The ski jump mystery is fun! Not because anything with a ski jump is a big part of the plot, and not exactly because I LIKE the plot . . . It's about the shoplifting and blackmarket selling of mink pelts. I mean honestly, mink is not a desirable commodity anymore. Wearing animal fur as a luxury is an unethical practice. For survival in awful climates, sure, go for it, but with global warming going out of control, I can't imagine many places will require the wearing of fur for human survival. Ugh, humans, what's the deal with humans?! And furthermore, it was a bogus scheme for the crooks to not only target uninformed women who just wanted to show off a fur neckpiece or whatever, but the crooks ALSO coaxed these women into buying stock for the fake fur company! And it still is common practice these days for bogus companies to target women into investing and then leaving them in the lurch. I'm looking at you, McLeggings and SmellyScents! Ahem, but anyway, speaking of women, I love this book because I bought a used copy, and the previous owner really heightened my reading experience. When she was reading this book in 1952 or whenever it was, I assume that she was bored and fidgety and was more interested in "art" than in reading. She had a blue ballpoint pen handy, and yes, she did indeed use it! At least a dozen times, she practiced her signature in the margins. Hey, Alison, where are you now?? Next, Alison designed some wonderful drawings of the daring girl group! And finally, she attempted a full body drawing, but wasn't pleased with how it was going, so she crossed out the face, and helpfully labelled the thing: "Crappy George." Cheers, Alison! Thanks for enhancing my reading experience of this dated story!

    A better than average Nancy Drew, I enjoyed the novelty of it. I recommend it to Drew fans. The skiing sand winter sports made for a more exciting read.

I don't know if it's common knowledge that the books in the series was made more politically correct (to 1960s standards) and their length reduced from 200+ pages to 177 (I guess to make them more profitable). I wish there left them alone, in a book of this length 25 pages is a significant loss. How much more could it have first in the cheap pulp paper they were printed on to have kept the original length--in those days I'm guess less than 50¢.

    Another fun Nancy Drew read-Nancy always gets her man! This was a fun, easy mystery-exactly what I expect from this series. This is a great read for fans of Nancy Drew, or those who are looking to see what this series is all about-this is a solid example of this series!

    it’s been a few years, but this book is what I keep thinking about while face planting in snow. I’m already behind on my 2020 goodreads goal (partly because of said faceplanting) so I figured I would use this book to cheat. Nancy wouldn’t approve at all. Sorry, Nancy.

The good part was that it didnt had any fancy stunts or unbelievable detection unlike many other later titles. I really enjoy these simplistic plots of nancy drew rather than supernatural ones or overtly technical ones. So overall a thumbsup for me.

    I saw the library added a ton of Nancy Drew e-books, and with the Winter Olympics happening, what better flashback to childhood than the Mystery of the Ski Jump? First of all, it wasn't about a ski jump at all. That was like two pages of the whole book. Second, it's so interesting to read a book like this written in the...past. I almost thought about classifying it as historical fiction! I would be so interested to talk to a current pre-teen reading these older versions of Nancy Drew.

It probably wouldn't be easy to read quickly with the dated language. Third, Nancy is still annoying. She knows everything and can do everything. But she's also Just A Girl, so bad things have to happen to her. For instance, early in the book, Nancy reminisces about winning a random slalom ski race. But later on, she hangs out with a ski instructor and demurs that she's not that great at skiing, and she does end up falling on a mogul. In some other scenes, she does a waltz and then the next day, subs in to a skating competition somehow because she could do the waltz on skates (?!). But near the end--she gets overtaken by the baddies and is kidnapped and almost dies!

    I would say out of all the Nancy Drew books this one is the most outdated. The mystery revolves around a large amount of women in River Heights and surrounding areas buying stolen fur coats and stock in a fake fur company.

Nancy also almost puts her hand into a steel claw trap, something which has been banned for quite some time. As Nancy is supossed to have the strongest moral compass in the world (girl wont even pass the speed limit while chasing a crook) its very strange to see her okay with the fur industry. And yes, i know this book was originally written in 1952 when wearing fur was not as scandals but it was rewritten in 1968, several years after the anti-fur movement had gained traction. The first half of this book is quite good and entertaining but it goes downhill after Nancy returns from Canada. Her trip to Canada and the Adirondacks are too similliar to be two different trips and her return to River Heights feels unnecessary.

    The captcha on this book is full of weird errors, more than most of the other books. And Nancy is a decent ice skater but not really impressive on skis, even though she won a novice slaloming competition a year before the book takes place. A phony stock scheme, like book 23 and 25. If you read these sequentially, the tropes recycle way too quick. Also Nancy's identity is stolen like in book 4. And of course, she's kidnapped and bound and gagged again when the people she's with turn their backs fo The captcha on this book is full of weird errors, more than most of the other books.

    I read this for some research and like most Nancy Drew books, I liked it. Written in 1952 (and I did have the 1952 edition), I found it interesting that this had to do with minks and furs. I grew up seeing those little animals biting each other draped around women's necks with their fake beady eyes. While selling fur in the fifties and sixties was accepted as normal, I wonder how today's generation accepts this? I read this for some research and like most Nancy Drew books, I liked it.

Nancy and her friends get closer to exposing the truth and solving the mystery at the ski jump and the plot has more twists and more changes and more mysteries as they solve the mystery at the ski jump. Keene’s characters in the mystery and is like you are in the story. Nancy struggles to solve the mystery without getting sidetracked and finish the case before anything else goes wrong. With secondary characters well built in to help her with the case and help her stay in track with more clues to help her with the case and help her with the case that she needs to solve. As the secondary characters are very close to her, she feels successful with the case. The theme of the story is that Nancy shows perseverance and integrity to keep going even if she is back where she began. With friends by her side, all the time she has helped and shows perseverance and is hard-working where there needs help and that tenacity can help solve anything with friends. I think people who like mystery about mystery and danger and friendship and who are looking for a heartwarming, complex riveting story. With Nancy Drew mysteries are very realistic.

The biggest coincidence has to be wherever Nancy goes, the swindlers just happen to be right near her! The title for this book really has nothing to do with the story. There is no mystery at a ski jump and the title really should be "The Secret at The Ski Jump"(which is shown on the cover with the man putting a bag into the snowman) or "The Search for The Elusive Swindlers". Overall, this is a very enjoyable mystery, and will keep you turning the pages. 4 stars.

This was not one of Nancy's best mysteries, as luck was really on their side when they managed to speak to the right people leading to the bogus Forest Fur Company. Let's also add skiing and skating to Nancy's growing list of skills; she managed to make an impromptu performance in a crowd. But I liked this story; perhaps it was a good break from phantoms, ghosts and haunted mansions. Also, Nancy's loyalty to Ned is put into question here. She was too friendly with a Chuck, much to Ned's jealousy.

    After the slog of "The Black Keys," this one was another good mystery. Lesson learned: never buy mink coats from women selling door to door. This one did have some issues. Chuck is far more likeable than Ned (also, too much Ned). Do the authors like Ned? Discuss. And there was an attempt to make John Horn a possible bad guy last minute, which distracted from the story. I also wonder what a mink trapper is doing in Illinois, not exactly known for its mink. But I loved it. There's identity theft!

Also, Aunt Eloise is awesome. And Togo, the dog who is only there when the plot requires it. A good one.

    It was a good book it had a lot of action. Nancy was kidnapped but was saved as usual by her friends or father. The whole book ios about how this lady decided to steal mink coats and sell them to people. The thing is that she decided to rip people off. With Nancy on the cas she was able to solve the mystery and hangout with her friends and her aunt.

    I’m rereading these to be able to discuss them with my granddaughters. This series presents Nancy as a young woman who thinks and who can get out of predicaments, albeit with some help, but she figures things out and isn’t afraid to question those who aren’t quite right. The Ski Jump was a good mystery, o just wondered if those who had been duped got their money back.

    My daughter gifted me for my most recent birthday Nancy Drew books that I did not yet have in my collection from my growing up years in the 1970's. I had almost forgotten the excitement that comes from reading one of these great books. I loved them in my teen years, and I love them still in my late fifties. Just like when I sat in my bedroom on a Sunday afternoon, I kept telling myself just one more chapter! What a treat to feel like a kid again!
