History:

Ski jumping in Menomonie developed in the late 1930s under the leadership of ski jumper and sports official Lloyd Ellingson. In 1937 a ski jumping hill was built at Wakanda Park and even famous Norwegians such as the brothers Birger and Sigmund Ruud and Reidar Andersen, as well as Americans Alf Engen and Art Devlin, participated in the competitions there. In 1957, the inrun structure was moved to Mt. Washington in Eau Claire, where it then served as a smaller training facility.
