History:

In January 1913, Olaus Jeldness and Guy Browne built the first ski jumping hill at Silver Hill, which is now called Browne Mountain, in Spokane and organized one of the first ski jumping exhibitions in the western US. Jeldness' friend Ole Larsen and Canadian champion Engwald Engen joined the competition on January 21, 1913 in front of a crowd of around 100 spectators and performed jumps of over 100 ft. Subsequently, Jeldness founded the Spokane Ski Club, improved the ski jump and organized a competition the week after, which then even attracted over 500 people. Further competitions were held there until February 1915. In 1930s new ski jumping hills were built at Mt. Spokane, Wandermere Golf Course and in Ski-Mor.
