Od lat 30' na Bear Mountain w Stanie Nowy York znajdowało się centrum skoków narciarskich całych USA i tam zorganizowano więcej zawodów niż gdziekolwiek indziej. Tereny na Hudson River były kandydatem do organizacji Zimowych Igrzysk 1932, które ostatecznie przyznane zostały Lake Placid. Jeszcze 16.01.1960 roku ponad 10,000 widzów przybyło oglądać zawody "Doerr Memorial Cup".
Od 1990 roku skocznia nie jest dalej używana.

My dad, Arnold Berge, used to jump in the 1930's and 40's at Bear Mountain and then again as an Old Timer in the 1960's. Since he worked for Eleanor Roosevelt in the 1930's he was able to arrange for FDR to sponsor a jump and Mrs. Roosevelt attended and presented the prizes. He also worked with the youth training them to jump here and in Fishkill and Rosendale.

I used to go there year-round with my family. We skated,ice and roller, tobogganed, at at snack bar and Inn, boated and watched the ski jumping when they scheduled it. I know I was there in 1965. I was 14! it was impressive to watch them jump! My face was right at the fence! I love that state park. It was a short "Sunday" drive seasonally for us. another place we stopped while going up or on the way home: The red apple Rest in Tuxedo-Southfields area, Old 17.

Col, US Army (R)

While I never skied there, I ran up that hill many times in NYS cross country championship races in the 70s. A lap around the lake and then a brutal slog up and over what looks like the spot where the jumpers started to land.
The pictures and video brought back some interesting memories. I now snowboard at Hunter though! Such a beautiful area of the state.

Torger Torkle

My mom was a waitress at Bear Mountain Inn and dated Torger before he went off to war and lost his life. We are lucky to have some of his correspondence with her. I learned to skate on the rink as we went round and round to the organ music, followed by watching the jumpers, which was quite a thrill.

Old result lists ...from Bear Mtn.ny. ski jumping.

My uncle Mr. Reidar Gundersen won several ski jump titles at Bear Mtn. ny. during the 1958-1968 time periode. I'm looking for result lists of that time periode. Does anyone have any information about that, Reidar just turned 80 years old and is still in great shape. I would be thankfull for any info. about his results or participation on him.

Jumped the hill in a club meet 1980 or 1981.
Coach Harry Brown from Vermont Academy drove us all over NE to meets.
A lot of the jumpers were jumping old school as they had in the day,hands forward.Hockey helmets and horned rimmed glasses didn't stop them from showing the greenhorns how to jump elevator shaft style hill.
In run track set amongst the saplings takeoff +/- 35 mph (?) takeoff.
Only work road ,viewing tower and knoll visible at takeoff.
Clear the knoll and reach for the K point. A big drop and a real thrill to jump with the old timers
