History:

On May 12, 1970, the IOC awarded the XII Olympic Winter Games of 1976 to Denver, the capital of Colorado at the foot of the Rocky Mountains. Main initiator of the bid was Governor John A. Love, who wanted to bring the Games to his home to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the US state in 1976. Part of the bid was also a proposed ski jumping complex for the Olympic ski jumping competitions. At the northeastern slope of Doublehead Mountain, for around 2.7m US dollars not only the Olympic hills should be built, but also three junior hills for the development of a youth program. The plastic covered ski jumping hills were to be designed by FIS inspector and former Czechoslovak ski jumper Miloslav Bělonožník.
However, due to strong objections of the people of Denver and Colorado against the hosting of the Games, mainly due to the exorbitant costs, a referendum was held in November 1972, at which it was decided by a 57% majority to hand the Games back to the IOC. Ultimately, they were staged in Innsbruck - and the ski jumping hills at Doublehead Mountain were never realized.
