History:

The first ski jumping event on Multorpor ski jump at Mt. Hood, Oregon, was held on January 6, 1929, already two years later the hill was newly shaped and the whole facility extended by Cascade Ski Club on four jumps.
The Cascade Jump is of very old design featuring a very shallow takeoff angle and sharp knoll dropping quickly to a very steep landing hill. The Cascade hill was famous for very large snow depths making the hill preparation very time consuming. The K60 and K45 shared the same landing hill and were typically used only once yearly during the 1950's and 1960's while the K25 was in use continuously into the early 1970's by only a few jumpers.
The ski jumping program at Mt. Hood ended with the last competition on the large hill in March 1971. The most famous event on the Cascade Hill took place the week following the 1960 Squaw Valley California Winter Olympic Games when the Japan Olympic Ski Jump team came to Oregon and put on an exhibition ski jump. The event was well attended by thousands of ski jumping fans from the Portland area. The most famous jumper from Mt Hood was 4 times United States Nordic Combined Olympian Mike Deveka (72 to 84) who started his jumping career on the Cascade Hill in the 1960's.

Former member of Cascade Ski Club

Corey A Gustafsson was a founder of Cascade Ski Club and was it's second President. He was one of the lead planners for the Cascade/Multorpor Ski Jump on which he jumped and won many tournaments. Corey was the offical Hill Captain at the 1960 Winter Olympics in Squaw Valley, California and was the one who invited the Japanese and others to participate in the Cascade Ski Club annual tournament in March following the Games. The Japanese had unique jumping skis that had bright colored tri-grooved bottoms. I was given a pair as they did not want to ship them home after the tournament. Corey was one of very few who had a Class A ranking in all four disciplines of skiing...jumping, cross country, slalom and down hill or giant slalom and lived in Happy Valley, Oregon until his passing in 1993.
