History:

Though the information about it is far from complete, it is confirmed that there was once a ski jumping hill at the Farellones ski center, located less than 40 km northeast from Chile's capital Santiago. The natural ski jump was probably temporary, rebuilt for each competition from snow at a steep slope (around 40°). Ski jumping was introduced there at last during World War II. In 1944 the Chilean Skiing Championships, which had a ski jumping event, too, were organized there. In its prime time, during mid-1950's, Farellones ski jump allowed athletes to jump over 30 metres.
At least two times, in 1954 & 1955, Farellones hosted some famous foreign skiers participating in the "Copa de Oro" event, in which they were competing in a skiing tetrathlon (slalom, downhill, ski jumping and cross-country skiing). Names like Stein Eriksen (Winter Olympics 1952 slalom winner and 4 time Alpine World Champion) and John Cress (two times USA junior national champions and Winter Olympics 1960 participant in nordic combined), as well as guests from both South America (Argentina, Bolivia) and Europe (Spain, Italy) were trying their best against top Chilean skiers of that time.
It is unknown when ski jumping disappeared from Chile, but nowadays there are no more remains of this sport in Farellones and hardly anybody knows that it was even ever present there.
