History:

In Northern-Californian Mount Shasta in 1931 Snowmen Winter Sports Club was founded and after that also a 40 meter ski jumping hill at Mt. Shasta was constructed. On January 23 & 24, 1932 the very first competition on new Snowmen’s Hill took place with world record jumper Alf Engen, his brother Sverre and Lars Haugen participating. One year after the Californian ski jumping championships, in which women took part, too, were hosted at Mt. Shasta, as well as another great jumping show. Until World War II there had been many ski jumping events on the ski jumps, but then ski jumping activities at Mt. Shasta slowly were coming to an end.
