History:

The ski jumping hill at the back side of Joppenbergh Mountain in Rosendale, a small town in New York State, was designed by Harold Schelderup from Norway and built by Telemark Ski Club in 1936-37 to promote tourism. In July 1937, there was even a summer ski jumping event attended by over 3000 spectators, for which the hill was covered with straw, pine needles and borax. In 1938, the inrun was increased by 25 feet to allow for greater distances. After the last competition in winter 1941, the hill was enlarged again, but due to the Second World War it could not be used anymore.
It was not until the beginning of 1964 that the Rosendale Nordic Ski Club was founded and then the construction of a 70-meter hill began, which was completed in November 1975. There was even an artificial snow machine there. International greats such as Franz Keller (hill record), Giacomo Aimoni and Ludvik Zajc took part in the jumping event organized by the Rosendale Outing Ski Club in 1969. At the last competition in 1970, Hugh Barber from Middlebury College set several hill records in front of 3500 spectators. Due to bad weather and internal club quarrels, competitions could no longer be held and the hill was abandoned.
