History:

The Norwegian brothers Ole and Peter Solberg brought skiing to Flagstaff in Arizona in 1914/15. On Sheep Hill in the northeast of the town, they later set up a toboggan and ski slope as well as a first small jumping hill. However, after a fatal accident, this ski area was abandoned in 1935.
Instead, a new ski area called Scissorbill Park was created in 1936 below Agassiz Peak, a secondary peak of Humprehys Peak (the highest mountain in the state at 3851 m). In 1938/39, the skiing activities were relocated to the Hart Prairie, a few hundred meters higher, where the "Arizona Snowball" ski area still exists today. Ski jumps were also built at both locations. After the Second World War, the ski team of the Arizona State Teachers' College under the leadership of club president Jimmie Nunn even built a 60-meter hill.
