History:

In February 1924, the first ski jumping in Big Bear Lake took place during the "Winter Carnival" organized by the Los Angeles Junior Chamber of Commerce. The first "competition" ski jumping hill in Big Bear Lake was built in 1928 near Charley Stillwell's resort (roughly where Elks Lodge is now). In 1932 another, most important jump was built on a hill south of Pine Knot. The captain of the Los Angeles' Viking Ski Club, Olaf Tellefsen, was responsible for its construction. In 1933, the California State Championship was held on the hill, in which Tellefsen won gold with a jump of 148 feet (45.1 m). Over the years, with downhill skiing becoming more and more popular, and the opening of the first ski lift in Big Bear Valley (1949), the ski jump fell into oblivion.
