History:

At Rochester Hills, a wealthy suburb in northern Detroit, the brothers Hall constructed a ski jumping hill made of wood and steel which was inaugurated on 1926-02-01. At the opening competition Anders Haugen won during difficult con­ditions with a jump of 85 feet. On the 40,000 US$ expensive ski jump many competitions, even with inter­national participants, were organized in 1920’s.
On August 10, 1934 the facility was destroyed by a heavy windstorm. Four years later the inrun tower of Brighton ski hill was bought over by Detroit Ski Club and reconstructed as a new jumping hill at the same place. But this one also fell victim of a storm later in 1940’s.

I was located in Rochester Park, formerly Bloomer state park. At the end of John R road.

Location

The current tip is only showing Rochester Hills, not the exact location of the former jump.
Please contact me via email if you have further details and the exact location.

I have done some research into this and the location shown on the map is off.
