History:

Already in 1910 the Norwegian immigrant, skiing pioneer of Canada’s capital Ottawa and founder of the local ski club Sigurd Lockeberg built up out of cordwood the first ski jump in Rockcliffe park called Suicide Hill. Until 1915 the tower was enlarged into a height of 35 meters. Before the hill record of 1914 by Sigurd Lockeberg was at 94 feet (28.7 m), afterwards on 1915-02-20 Ragnar Omtvedt from Chicago jumped on unbelievable 145 ft. (44.2 m). At that time up to 5,000 spectators went to the hill at competitions. But already in autumn 1915 this new built tower was destroyed and it took until 1920 to rebuilt a new one with even two ski jumping hills. But also this inrun tower didn’t last long and collapsed even in the same year, because of construction faults. After there had been a provisional smaller wooden tower, in 1926 a steel made inrun tower was completed. This one was used until 1937 and then dismantled, because ski jumping activities of Ottawa Ski Club were transferred to Camp Fortune.
