History:

In 1921 the first skiing area west of Colorado was opened in Cle Elum and therewith also the Kiwanis ski jumping hills south of Cle Elum were constructed and finally opened in December 1923. At the first “Ski Carnival” on February 12, 1924 John Holen from Seattle was the winner in front of more than 1,200 spectators with a longest jump of 83 feet.
Also the competitions in the following years were very successful and so in 1929 a larger ski jump was built up at “Summit” area. Then in 1930 about 3,000 spectators watched the tournament at “Summit Ski Club Hill”, at which Olaf Locken flew on 165 feet. Until 1933 further competitions were held, but then the ski jumps on the other side of the mountain at Snoqualmie Pass became more important, also because an enlargement of the ski jump at Cle Elum failed due to lack of financial funds and the remote location of the ski jump.
