History:

The history of American ski jumping began in the 80’s of 19th century in Red Wing, Minnesota. There mainly Norwegian immigrants founded Aurora Ski Club and started ski jumping. On 1887-02-08 Mikkel Hemmestvedt managed the jump the first North-American ski jumping record with 37 feet (11,3 m) at the very first ski jumping competition in the USA. At that time “Red Wing Style” was created, a type of flying which was copied by people from the whole continent later and made Aurora Ski Club the best of the country for about 20 years of time. Already three years later Mikkel Hemmestvedt jumped the first world record at Red Wing with 102 ft. (31.1 m) and 1893 his brother Torjus even jumped one feet longer and therewith again a new world record.
McSorely Hill, which was also called Bush Street Ski Jump, had been in use until 1920's.
