Photograph of ski jumping at Big Pines Recreation Camp, showing people climbing up a hill, 1929. Several people in snow gear climb up the snowy hill at center with sleds and skis in their hands. The long ski jump extends down the hill next to them from the left foreground to the center distance. The jump runs between the forest of evergreen trees that continues into the background. A small building stands on the left.; "In 1923, Los Angeles county established a major recreational facility at Big Pines, an all year resort that included winter and summer sports. Big Pines Recreation Camp (elevation 6,862 feet) had cabins, dining room, fountain and store. Many of the buildings still stand (most notably one of the two stone towers that once supported a pedestrian overpass across Highway 2, west of Wrightwood). Now administered by the U.S. Forest Service, Big Pines continues to be a popular recreation area encompassing three ski resorts, several campgrounds and Jackson Lake." -- unknown author.
