History:

The construction of "Piper's Gap Ski Jump" at Mt Piper in Perisher Valley in the area of Mount Kosciuszko (with 2228 m highes mountain of the Australian mainland) was approved by Kosciusko State Park Trust in 1966 and then carried out by the Ski Council of New South Wales in 1967 for 12,000 $. The 45 meter ski jump with its mighty wooden inrun tower was modified in 1970, but due to the little usage and high maintenance cost it was used a last time only in 1972. The destruction followed in 1976 by prisoners as part of a resocialization programme.

Taking up another skiing sport

I was downhill and cross-country racing in the early 1970s when I added ski jumping to my sports. I borrowed jumping skis from Auden Friestad, a former jumper living in Canberra. I went into competition representing the YMCA ski club (Brindabella Ski Club).
