History:

The first ski jumping competition in Starbuck was held on February 17, 1909. The ski jumping hill was located about a mile north of the town. 1500 paying spectators came to marvel at jumps up to 92 feet (28 meters). The Starbuck Ski Club was then formed for the second competition, held annually from now on. Despite the adverse conditions, jumps of up to 104 feet were made on the improved hill on February 16, 1910. Presumably, the ski jump was used until 1922, when the ski jump in Glenwood at the other end of Lake Minnewaska was enlarged.
