History: Genesee Mountain was a stop on the national ski jumping
circuit from 1921-1927.  Its location was very close to major cities, but
snow can be very unpredictable at that elevation.  This site at its prime
had four ski jumps.  During the mid 1950's the University of Denver used
the area for ski jump training.
