The Wolverine Hill ski jumping facility was built in 1935 in order to replace Curry Hill, which had been destroyed in 1930. Already then Gogebic Range Ski Club (which is now Copper Peak Inc.) wanted to revive the glorious history of Curry Hill and build a world record braking hill. However, first only a 60 meter and 40 meter double ski jumping hill were built. Apart from the World War II years, the hill had been used for ski jumping tournament every winter. In 1942 Torger Tokle set a hill record of 216 feet, which had been unbeated until the hill was destroyed by a storm in 1963.
Instead of immediately rebuilding the hill, in 1969 the new Copper Peak ski flying hill was constructed. Only in 1975 Wolverine Hill was re-constructed as a ski jumping training center with four hills. It had been in use until 1995, but was then shut down due to declining levels of interest in ski jumping. Today Wolverine Nordic Ski Club is still operating an extensive network of cross-country and snow shoe trail network. Furthermore, Big Powderhorn ski resort is located not far from the former ski jumping hill.

Remember Henry Hanson. Ended each ski tournament with a summersault.

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
