History:

Already in 1930’s Gogebic Range Ski Club at Ironwood had the idea to construct the world’s largest ski jumping hill. But first in 1935 at Wolverine Hill a 60 and 40 meter wooden double jumping hill was built up. This was used until the construction of Copper Peak ski flying hill in 1969. Six years later the whole ski jumping facility was modernized for young jumpers again. Today the complete facility is no more existing.

There are some remains of the facility

Although Wolverine Hill is now defunct, some wooden structures from the old ski jumps still exist at the top of the hill. They can be clearly seen from the bottom.

President, Copper Peak Inc.

The four photos shown are NOT of Wolverine Hill. Wolverine Hill was built in 1935 and blew down in 1963. Torger Tokle set the record at 216 feet in 1942. Wolverine Hill was rebuilt in 1975 and Steve Sydow of Duluth,MN set a record of 223 ft. in 1983. Ragnar Omtvedt did not ski Wolverine. He set a world record on Curry Hill in 1913

I believe the record jump was closer to 216'. Set some time in the early 50s
