History:

In June 1934 an indoor ski jumping hill was set up in the Auditorium of Minnesota during “Northwest Sportsmen’s Show”. The inrun was starting 120 feet above ground level of the convention hall and was running downwards over spectator’s places. Ski jumping experts as Anders Haugen participated in the event and made jumps around 25 meters on the ski jump which was completely covered with straw mattings and reed. The outrun was construed by canvas and a rope was tautened in order to slow down the ski jumpers.
