ON THE COVER: During the later decades of the 1800s, ski jumping became very popular, drawing thousands of spectators to watch these exciting events. These
events also provided a curiosity for many to experience the thrill of descending a snow-covered slope. Early 20th Century participants sought out accessible snowcovered
hills along roadways such as California's Highway 40 and above Placerville, as well as, many of the slopes in the Southern California mountains to which
they could travel. They would walk up the slopes for an exhilarating downhill ride. Recreational skiing was becoming a favorite winter pastime for many. One of
the reasons a Californian bid to host the 1932 Winter Olympics was turned down in 1929 was that there was no area Ski Association to coordinate the events. Thus,
a group of avid skiers took it upon themselves to found the California Ski Association in 1930. This booklet outlines the 90 year journey of the CSA/FWSA. Famous ski
jumper and two-time Olympic gold medalist Norwegian Birger Ruud shows his style. (See page 62.) photo provided by John W. Lundin, Museum of History and Industry, Seattle, Washington
