The steps on the Pine Mountain Ski Jump in Iron Mountain are almost complete. The estimated $80,000 project that was started in the beginning of S eptember is having the finishing touches put on now.
Champion Incorporated teamed up with the Iron Mountain YMCA to make this happen. The old steps were in rough shape and on the verge of a safety hazard.
"They were in dire need of repair," said Bruce Varda, a YMCA board member. "In some cases there were steps missing; in some cases there were actually about 30 inches that you had to step up to get to the next step, so it was in dire need of repair."
There was a program where people can buy a particular step. They only have a few steps left. Brett Favre even bought a step, and naturally he bought step number four.
