History:

Before Suicide Hill jump was built, different areas and jumps were used for ski jumping. The first tournament in Ishpeming took place on February 25th 1882. Since 1887 the annual competition has taken place every year. In the following years ski jumps were constructed with snow and wood. Since people wanted to jump even longer, the facilities became more and more dangerous. People were looking for larger hills and consequently Suicide Hill was opened on February 26 th 1926. The jump got its name when Walter Anderson was injured in 1926 after a fall. First the new name which was created by a local journalist was not so popular at the ski club, but then it rested up until today.
In 1972 the ski jump was renovated and enlarged, the other youth jumps were constructed step by step. K40 and K13 were covered with plastic mattings in 2009.
