History:

In June 1953 the ski club organized the „Portland Rose Festival“ as a ski jumping and alpine slalom competition, what for a temporal ski jump was built up in the local football stadium. The highest point of the inrun construction was 47 m above the level of the football pitch and the steel pipe hill construction was covered with about 200 tons of artificially made snow, which was produced by four ice powder machines of a local company.
Despite the warm rain which was falling in evening hours this artificial snow over lived the whole event. The wonder of this was called “snow cement” and this was the birth time of the chemical snow additional which can stabilize melting snow surfaces on ski jumping hills.
Accompanied by 40,000 cheering spectators, of which the most never had seen ski jumping or alpine slalom before, Arne Hoel from Portland was the winner of the competition in four rounds with a best jump distance of 131 feet.
The floodlight event ended with slalom competitions, at which the run time was only 10 seconds long, because of the short slope. With this tournament the Cascade Ski Club tried to improve his finances, but also gain public attention for the upcoming winter games at Mt. Hood.
