History:

Swedish immigrants brought ski jumping to Winnipeg in 1905. Some years later this sport get quite big popularity in the city. First wooden ski jump were opened in 1913 or 1914 at riversides of Assiniboine River. During 1920s at least 3 new ski jumps were built in different parts of city - of which two-hills complex with steel inruns and wooden outruns located in River Park was the most known one. Ski jumping was popular there during also 1930s but later it slowly started to lose it. Ski jumping's last episodes in Winnipeg took place in 1950s when this sport disappeared from the city - nowadays nothing reminds of its former glory.
