Sliding, Gliding and Soaring: A history of skiing in Revelstoke, British Columbia
All Audio




As you go up towards the Big Hill, Nels Nelsen Hill, just below that, down on the next level, and it's all overgrown, you can't see it now. We had a jump there, we called the White Rock. It was just west of the ski run that we had here and below the old jump. There was a jump that was built there that came right down to the Big Bend Highway, the Big Bend Highway used to go out that way. That was a pretty good sized jump. You could do close to 200 feet on that. Next to that we had a smaller jump just to the west of that, we called the "C" hill. That was there first, and we used to jump on that. You could do a little over 100 feet on that. And the Big Bend jump also, the take off was built out of lumber and so forth, just the take-off. But the contour of the landing was pretty good so they didn't have to do too much work with that.
