The beginnings of skiing at Revelstoke in British Columbia originate to Norwegian immigrants back in 1890. First ski jumping hills already existed in the beginning of the 20th century.
The most important ski jumps in the city were at the Nels Nelsen ski jumping complex, consisting of four hills, where on the largest hill the World Record was beaten several times. The complex was rebuilt several times and the last competition was held in 1974.
North of the city center the "Big Bend Ski Jump" was inaugurated on 1939-01-15 instead and allowed jumps on more than 60 meters. After no competitions were possible throughout war times, the jump was used again after 1946 and dedicated to Hans Gunnarsen.
