History:

In the end of 1930’s a group of skiers around the Norwegian immigrant Oscar Knutson constructed a small ski jumping hill at Mullet River Mill. Later this ski jump was enlarged and named after the former club member John “Pinky” Penkwitz who died in an accident. Moreover the community of Plymouth installed floodlights and helped with the snow preparation of the ski hill. Finally the ski jump was declared as unsafe in early 1960’s and had to be closed.
Additionally there was another jump called Chocolate Drop Hill, to which the numerous young ski jumpers could elevate after their first steps on Pinky’s Knoll.
