History:

In Niagara, a neighboring town of Iron Mountain, the construction of a ski jump on Wodenka Hill began in 1937 under the direction of Herb Peterson. In 1938 the wooden hill could be opened, with Peterson making the inaugural jump. The annual competitions held until 1950 attracted up to 1,500 spectators. In 1942, Torger Tokle and Art Devlin even came to Niagara to prepare for the Pine Mountain competition.
In the summer of 1954, the decaying wooden tower was replaced by a steel structure, which was erected on a budget of only $2,200 from 11 electricity pylons in voluntary work. A floodlight system for night jumping was also installed. With the expansion of alpine skiing activities, however, the interest in ski jumping decreased and so the hill was dismantled after 1975.
