History:

Two ski jumps were built about 1935 by the Civilian Conservation Corps on Mt. Valhalla near Washburn in far northern Wisconsin. The Mt. Valhalla Winter Sports Area in Chequamegon National Forest also included slopes for alpine skiing. The 60 m and 30 m ski jumping hills were frequently used until World War II, but then they were neglected.
About 1960, Lloyd `Snowball` Severud, who had been on the original construction crew, cleared the hills and began using them again for organized training camps and competitions during the 1960's.
