The Snowflake Ski Club was founded in 1922 and can look back on a long history of ski jumping and ski jumping hills. From 1923 to 1925, the ski jump at the Holte Farm was used. After that, the activities moved to the Anderson Farm in Timber Coulee near today's Snowflake ski jumps. Anderson Hill had a 22-meter high tower and allowed jumps over 50 meters. Alf Engen held the hill record with 187.5 and 193 feet. Around 1930, the ski jump was destroyed by a tornado and the jumping activities came to a standstill. Only later the ski club was re-established as a member of the Tri-State Ski Association. Before and after World War II, the jumping took place on the new hill in the Seas Branch.
In 1947/48 the new 60-meter hill at Anderson Farm was built and opened on February 8, 1948. In 1949, even Petter Hugsted, the Olympic champion of St. Moritz in 1948, jumped there, ringing in an era with regular international competition cups. In the 1950s, more than 10,000 spectators came to the major competitions on Anderson Hill. In 1952 and 1960, the US team also completed its Olympic preparation there.
As the previous hill was exhausted in terms of jumping distance and spectator capacity, in 1960 the Snowflake Ski Club bought the area of ​​the Volden Farm in Timber Coulee in order to build a 90-meter hill with the (parking) space for 30,000 spectators. It was built with much effort of the community and inaugurated on January 29, 1961. Robert Wedin won, but John Balfanz set the hill record of 89 meters. In the following years - especially after dangerously long jumps and falls in 1963 - numerous modifications were necessary, for which Dr. P.T. Bland and the Norwegian Agnar Renolen were in charge.
In the 1960s and 70s crowds of around 20,000 spectators came to the regular tournaments and the ski jumping facility at Timber Coulee was extended with the smaller hills. In 1980, the Snowflake large hill was enlarged as K112 (P90) by moving the impressive intrun tower 10 meters to the back. In 1999, the whole profile of the landing hill was re-modeled and the hill modified as K106.
In the 1990s and 2000s, the annual Snowflake Ski Tournaments in February were part of the FIS Conti­nental-Cup. The smaller jumps are mainly used by young jumpers, for whom every year in January a large competition is hosted.
