History:

In early 1930's a ski jumping hill was constructed at Sullys Hill, a game preserve south of Devils Lake in North Dakota, and inaugurated on 1932-12-26. The ski jump was operated for a few decades and most famous ski jumpers competing on it were Olympic Game participants Casper Oimen (competed in the 1932 Olympics and in 1936 - then as captain of the US team) and Peder Falstad (started in 1932, helped build a ski jump at Bald Hill Creek in Hannaford, North Dakota in 1924). Still today the steel-made inrun structure is visible.

Arne Braathen from Starkweather, ND. He qualified to go to the 1936 Olympics, but did not go. The Olympics were in Germany that year and his family in Norway had warned him that Germany was not safe due to everything Hitler was doing. He had some really cool stories about ski jumping. The Devil's Lake ski jump was one of the most dangerous ski jumps to jump off of.

My dad Ira Manley took us there to watch . A lot of them had broken legs and arms. They took them to Devils Lake for repair. It was a lot of fun, and there was a lot of great skiers, Mostly from Norway Great area,
