History:

In 1905 the Ironwood Ski Club built the 40-meter ski jump Curry Hill just outside of Ironwood. It started operations in 1906 and was used until 1914. Undoubtedly, the world records set up by Anders Haugen in 1911 (152 feet) and Ragnar Omtvedt in 1913 (158 and 169 feet) were the biggest highlights in the hill's history and established Ironwood as a ski flying destination.
After World War I the hill was equipped with a new, 35 m high inrun tower by Norrie Athletic Club in 1922. In 1923 Walter Brattlund from Ironwood set a new hill record of 185 feet. Curry Hill had then been used until 1930, when its inrun structure collapsed during a storm. It was replaced only five years later by the new Wolverine Hill in 1935.
In February 1940 Curry Hill had been reactivated for a short while: a smaller wooden inrun structure was set up and a boys tournament was held, where jumps of around 20-25 meters were performed.
