From the Archives: UW-Madison’s Muir Knoll ski jump

From the late-1910s thru 1950s, there was a ski jump from the top of Muir Knoll (the small knob of land on the northern edge of Bascom Hill) down to Lake Mendota. The first version was a wooden frame and, according to a Wisconsin Alumnus magazine article, was built by Norwegian students on their Christmas holidays.
