Local Knowledge:
A ski jump was built on the steep hillside to the southwest of the lake with a landing site near the lake's current sandy western beach. From 1913 to 1920, Stewart Park was alive with visitors to attend world-class ski jump competitions. The events attracted thousands to the valley, and provided entertainment to amazed crowds. Special passenger trains ran from Madison-Mt. Horeb to accommodate the visitors. (Friends of Stewart Park)
