History:

The first ski jumping hill at Genesee Mountain, located about 30 km west of Denver in the Rocky Mountains, was set up in 1919. For some time, there were up to four ski jumps there. In 1921 the Denver Ski Club organized the "National Ski Tournament" on the large hill - won by Einar Jensen from Chicago. From 1921 to 1927 Genesee was part of the national ski jumping competition series, for which thousands of spectators came to the hill. The large hill was used until around 1937 and the smaller hills were still used by University of Denver for training in 1950s.

More hills?

Are any of them operating? I live in Colorado and I want to give ski jumping a try. There are no beginner hills in operation. :(

Hills in Colorado

There have been quite a few other hills in Colorado, which we hope to add over the next couple of weeks :-)
