History:

In 1918 Peter Prestrud, Eyvin Flood and Anders Haugen constructed a giant ski jumping hill at Dillon, Colorado, which was opened on March 8 and 9, 1919 with two large competitions. At this tournament the Norwegian immigrant and local hero Anders Haugen jumped a new world record with 213 feet (64.9 m). One year later he improved his own world record at the same place again with one single foot on 214 ft. From 1954 onwards, the ski jump was called Prestrud Hill.

Jump buried by Dillon Dam, Frisco ran for many years

Hi,
The Dillon Jump was buried beneath Dillon Reservoir. Frisco had a very nice K 45 and K 25 for many years to follow but were lost when High School jumping ended. Would be good to get going again but need permission from the Forest Service. Wetland for stopping.
