In end 1920’s / early 30’s there was a large ski jumping hill, on which the American elite competed regularly, at Californian Big Pines, in 1924 opened skiing and recreation area. There Alf Engen jumped on 234 ft. in 1931, which was only three and a half meters below his world record set up at Ecker Hill at the beginning of this year. By the way, this ski jumping hill was constructed in 1929 in view of the hosting of 1932 Winter Olympic Games at Wrightwood and Big Pines, but in the end a lack of snow lead to moving them to Lake Placid, where they finally took place.
