History:

Banff, located near Calgary on the border between the two provinces Alberta and British Columbia, once had large ski jumping hills. Austrian Conrad Kain built the first small ski jump at Tunnel Mountain in 1910. In 1917, the very first “Winter Carnival” was organized by ski jumpers from Revelstoke on the newly created ski jump at Buffalo Paddocks on Tunnel Mountain. For the Carnival in 1920, a new ski jump was built, on which Henry Hall then jumped 180 and 182 feet in 1920 and 1921, respectively. However, due to the construction of Highway 1, it had to be given up in 1935 and ski jumping activities moved to Mount Norquay, where a skiing resort had been built up since 1929.
