History:

In 1973 the old ski jump at Kirby Ski Hill in Oshawa (currently known as Brimacombe) was torn down. Shortly after, it was replaced by a new 40-meter ski jump which operated until late 1990s. Many ski jumpers were trained there, from which the most well-known is probably Ron Richards who competed in three Olympic Winter Games (1984, 1988 and 1992). Nowadays, there are no remains of the former ski jump, since it was replaced by another one alpine skiing trail.

oh, the days of my youth, i first went off the practice jump (35m) after Nancy Greene came to visit Oshawa, i believe in late winter of 1968 just after she won the Olympics or it may have been early winter of 1969 (she was there to promote the new Nancy Greene League). I can't remember exactly, i jumped with Randy and Ron Richards and Bucky Richards their father was always around, i left Oshawa in 1978, last jumped in 1981 i believe (getting old, lol) just before it was torn down. They were great times ...
