History:

At the end of 1911, Colorado's first ski jump was built on the northeast slope of Bungalow Hill in Hot Sulphur Springs. The builders and first jumpers during the winter carnival organized by John Peyer on December 30th and 31st, 1911 were the Norwegians Angell Schmidt and Carl Howelsen, who later established the famous ski jump in Steamboat Springs and was a major driving force for ski jumping in Colorado. Howelsen made the longest jump with 79 feet (24 meters). At the winter carnival in February 193, he even reached 119 feet (36.3 m).
Bungalow Hill with its ski jump was the main skiing site in the area until the 1930s, before Mount Bross was opened up for winter sports. It was not until 1983 that the remains of the Bungalow Hill ski jump are said to have been removed.
