Already around 1904-1905 Lake Placid Club started its ski jumping activities and constructed several small ski jumps. In the early years, around 1917, there were two 10 and 20-meter practicing hills at Golf Hill. The competition-ready 35-meter hill at Intervales was constructed in 1920-21 for $1736 and inaugurated with an attendance of 3,000 spectators on February 21, 1921. A record distance of 124 feet was set by Antony Maurer. Furthermore, Lake Placid Athletic Club operated a 15 and a 35-meter ski jump in town, close to the Olympic stadium, during that time.
Already in 1923 Intervales ski jump was enlarged into a K50 and in 1927 the conversion works for the 1932 Olympic Winter Games started for a total of around 35,000 USD. First, a new steel-made inrun tower with a height of 20 meters was set up, and then extended by another 3 meters in 1928. Furthermore, spectator stands were built along the landing hill of the K61 ski jump, which was designed by Godfrey Dewey, and also around the outrun. Around 10,000 spectators then witnessed a triple victory for Norway in the Olympic event on 1932-02-12: Birger Ruud claimed the gold medal ahead of Hans Beck, who set the hill record of 71.5 meters, and Kåre Walberg.
The large hill was reused without many changes also for the 1950 Nordic WSC, where Hans Bjørnstad claimed the ski jumping title. From the mid-1950s on the annual Kennedy Games event was held at Lake Placid, sometimes with world-class international participants. Presumably, in 1965 the hill was modernized as a K72 and in 1972 the Universiade student games were hosted there.
In 1977 the old inrun tower was demolished in order to rebuild a completely new facility for the 1980 Olympics. The K86 and K114 ski jumps with steel and reinforced concrete inrun towers were designed by Marl Martitsch. The normal hill was completed and inaugurated in December 1978 and the large hill could be finished just in time for the Olympic test events in February 1979. The Intervale hills were then named after Ronald Malcolm MacKenzie, who had been president of the Olympic organizing committee, but passed away in 1978.
During the 1980s both ski jumping hills had been part of the ski jumping World Cup quite frequently and international summer events had been held on the K86, which was covered with plastic mattings in 1983. Around the same time the plastic-covered junior hills K48, K20 and K10 were established. A further major event was the Junior-WSC in 1986.
The hills were modernized in 1994 and have since been re-profiled as K120 and K90. They are still regularly used for training and national-level tournaments, and once in a while also for international competitions. In fall 2011 the outdated K18 ski jump was deconstructed and a new K20 hill was set up in between K120 and K40.
To prepare for the Winter-Universiade in 2023, both larger hills are being modernized for around 3 million USD. In summer 2019 works started. They shall be completed by fall 2021. The hills are equipped with cooled inrun track systems and also the profiles are updated. Also, the cross-country skiing center and tracks are being completely redeveloped. The re-opening has been held with the US Olympic trials on Christmas 2021. After almost 25 years, the Ski Jumping World Cup made its return to Lake Placid in February 2023. Moreover, the K48 has been modernized.
