History:

Swedish immigrants brought ski jumping to Winnipeg in 1905. Some years later the sport became fairly popular in the city. The first wooden ski jump was opened in 1913-1914 at the riverside of Assiniboine River. During 1920s at least 3 new ski jumps were built in different parts of city - of which the two-hill complex with steel inruns and wooden knolls located in River Park was the most known one. Ski jumping was popular there during also 1930s but later interest slowly started to decrease. Ski jumping's last episodes in Winnipeg took place in 1950s when this sport disappeared from the city - nowadays nothing reminds of its former glory.
