History:

The first ski jumping hill at Greenfield was located on the eastern slope of Shelburne Mountain and was operational in the 1920s and 1930s. Jumping competitions were organized there as part of the winter carnivals.
After the facility at Shelburne Mountain fell into disrepair, William Graves initiated a new hill near Abercrombie Field. Graves built it for his daughter Dorothy, who successfully competed at the national level in the 1940s and was called "the only female ski jumper in the States". After about three decades the jump fell into oblivion and today its landing hill is a popular place for off-road riding on motorcycles.
Among the jumps in Greenfield, the facility at Holland Farms should also be mentioned, where in the 1960s the winter resort also consisted of a popular ski lift and a toboggan run. The facility was looked after by former famous ski jumpers Strand Mikkelsen and Ken Suhl.
