History:

Eau Claire used to have numerous ski jumping hills at various locations during the 20th century. In 1949, the first, smaller "Hendrickson Hill" ski jump was set up between Chippewa River and Clairemont Avenue. It was named after Jimmy Hendrickson, former Olympic athlete in 1936, and had a ca. 26 m high inrun tower. In 1955 the larger K61 jump was added. Peculiarly, the 68.5 m high inrun tower was originally constructed in Ogden Dunes, Indiana, then relocated to Rockford, Illinois, in 1935 and again moved to Eau Claire in 1955. In 1968-69 the hill was abandoned and the steel tower was once again dismantled and reassembled in its new location at Silver Mine Hill, where it is still used today.
