History

Silver Summit was conceived in the early 1960s by a group of local businessmen, including Paul Melhus from Edmonton, who saw the need for a ski hill outside the Canadian Rockies. Rick Damm, a German former ski jumper, bought the ski resort in 1969. During the year of 1984, a ski jumping complex with K15, K30, and K50 hills were built, all in accordance with FIS standards. The ski jumping facility at Silver Summit opened October 1984 and was the only ski jumping facility until Canada Olympic Park was completed in Calgary. Although the ski jump towers have been demolished, the judge's tower still remains to this day.
