History:

Already in 1910 skiing pioneer Peter Prestrud, who was also one of the initiators of the construction of the world record hill at close-by Dillon in 1918, built the first ski jumping hill at Tenmile Creek Canyon at Frisco.
In 1967, Art Bookstrum lead the construction of two junior jumping hills at the foot of Mount Royal in view of Peak One. Probably these jumps were extended in mid-1970s based on the efforts by Robert John Zdechlick. The hills were widely used by students until 1979, but then ski jumping was removed from the program of Colorado High School Activities Association. After a short episode in 1989, the hills were completely abandoned.
