History:

From 1933 to 1941 the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) constructed numerous sports and leisure facilities at Allegany State Park in the far west of the State of New York. Among these were also two ski jumping hills with a mighty stone-made take-offs, which can be seen still today. Numerous competitions took place on the K50 and K30 between 1935 and 1979.

My Stepfather was Fran's Elsigan

My mother Jodi Pross dated Franz in the early 70s. The met at Raquette Lake. He had a boat and loved to water ski. He owned Big Rock cottages on Fourth Lake in Old Forge. We also lived with him when he managed Cockaigne mountain during the winters. We lived with him until '74 when they stopped dating. 4 years later they reunited and married for only a couple years. If you have pics, would you please send them along?
Thank you,
Derek

Allegany -- history & photos

I took some photos of this jump (after xc-skiing in the area) and have the hill records, along with other history. I'll send the photos if you are interested. Here is the history: First meet--February 24, 1935; Last meet--February 3, 1979. Hill records: 50m jump, 188 feet, Franz Elsigan (Austria, 1956); 30m jump, 108 feet, George Boyer (NY, 1948). There were two jumps at this site. Also have an old video of skiing here (but no jumping).
