History:

Starting in 1923, unique summer skiing and ski jumping events were held below Old Man Mountain in Estes Park, the eastern center of Rocky Mountain National Park. For this purpose, snow and ice were transported from the glaciers to the slope. The first jump on the hill took place in March 1924, with Lars Haugen performing the longest jump of 117 feet (35.7 m). In February 1926, the Colorado State Ski Tournament was held there in front of 3,000 spectators. The hill, on which later jumps of 45 meters were possible, was probably used until 1950s.
In 1950s, there was also a small ski jump on Leydman Hill behind the hospital for a short time.
