History:

Ski jumping at Charlotte Pass in Mount Kosciusko National Park was present from at least early 1930s. During first years only temporary ski jumps were built there every winter.
In 1933 at such hill the Australian Ski Jumping Championship was held and won by famous Norwegian immigrant - Sverre Kaaten who achieved 30 metres in the longest jump of a competition. Next year first permament ski jump was built there and named Kaatenbakken as a tribute for Sverre Kaaten. Local hero didn't disappointed then - he won the Australian Ski Jumping Championships on 7th August 1934, which was a first competition held on newly opened hill, and day later made an astonishing attempt breaking Australian record (which was, of course, also the longest jump ever made on the continent at the time) with a distance of 43 metres. He even jump a 1 meter longer in next attempt but fell hard at the landing.
The ski jump was used still after II World War and Kaaten even managed to win national championships again in 1946.
