History:

The first ski jump in Guthega in the area of Mount Kosciuszko (with 2228 m highest mountain of the Australian mainland) was built in 1951 by Norwegian immigrants, who in early 1950's worked there for Selmer Engineering Company of Oslo. In this year they formed Selmer Norwegian Ski Club. Each year in August they organised in Guthega an international ski jumping competition to celebrate the birthday of Norwegian king Haakon VII.
They built two ski jumps in Guthega: a K20 and K40. In August 1952 they organised an international competition in which competed over 100 athletes. One of competitors was Halvard Dalheim, who was the chairman of Selmer Norwegian Ski Club and before coming to Australia he competed in Norwegian Ski Jumping Championships. This event was attended by 1500 spectators, winner was Peder Bottan who jumped 41.5 meters and runner-up was A. Pillinstpae.
In 1953 a new K10 ski jump was built for novice ski jumpers without specialist equipment. Moreover the largest ski jump was enlarged from K40 to K45. Thanks to this in August 1953 Syvert Ravnevand from Norway set up a new hill record and the longest ski jump ever in Australia in this time - 50.49 meters (former record was 7.49 meters shorter). During this event two other ski jumpers jumped 49 meters (Rolf Killingstad and T. Lillefjord). The Competition was even attended by 2500 spectators!
