History:

From 1939 to 1952, there was the Pioneer Ski Area in Gunnison County in Cement Creek below Cement Mountain, about 8 miles southeast of Crested Butte. In 1948 a ski jump was built there, but it was found to be too dangerous and was abandoned after just one winter.
Instead, a new ski jumping hill was built on Rozman Hill at the foot of Whetstone Mountain in 1950. Alpine runs were also created on Rozman Hill in 1951-52. While the alpine ski area was abandoned after the opening of the Crested Butte Mountain Resort in 1962, the ski jump used by the Western State College and the cross-country trails continued to operate until the late 1970s.
