History:

The first ski jumping hills at Beloit were already used in late 1920’s, while in 1936 a mighty 60 meter hill with steel-made inrun tower was constructed. At competitions in 1940’s Torger Tokle first set up a record distance of 212 feet (64.6 m), in 1948 Art Daggett Jr. improved it on 221 ft. (67.4 m). In these days even many European world class ski jumpers competed in tournaments at Big Hill Park. In 1955 ski jumping activities had stopped and only few years later the steel inrun tower was removed and built up again at Westby for the 64 m hill.

Big Hill ski Jump

The Big Hills ski jump was not destroyed. It was dismantled and moved to Westby Wisconsin which I believe is still in use.

Former Beloit resident

These are great shots of the very old ski-jump! I remember growing up in the 1905-1960 era and actually standing below this thing. It was very tall. Don't know how any man would want to ski down this thing!

Fehler

Hier hat sich wohl der Fehlerteufel eingeschlichen. Die Schanze steht auf der Hauptseite unter Skiflugschanzen (links), was definitiv falsch ist.
Auch der Schanzenrekord beträgt nicht 221 meter, wie angegeben, sondern 221 feet, ergo 67,4 meter. Im Text der Geschichte sind die Angaben auch korrekt.
