History:

The first big competition on the Suicide Hill in New Boston, which was one of the largest jumps with a natural inrun in the US, took place on January 25-26, 1936. John Erkkila from the Detroit Ski Club won with the best distance of 181 feet (55.2 m). Among the announced stars was Johanne Kolstad, the famous Norwegian ski jumper and world female record holder, who has been in the States since 1933, taking part in a number of show competitions. The ski jump only functioned for three seasons, after which it was destroyed in a storm in the summer of 1938.
