History:

The first ski jump at Mount Cook or Aoraki, with 3754 meters the highest mountain of New Zealand, was built in 1931 near the Ball Hut. In this year the first competition there was won by H. Elworthy.
On 1937-07-27 an international competition in ski jumping was organized at Mount Cook, in which ski jumpers from the USA and New Zealand competed. Then hill record was set by American Richard Durrance, who jumped about 30 metres (95 3/4 ft) and won the competition. In this event the New Zealand record in ski jumping was set, too, by Brian McMillan, who jumped about 18.6 metres (61 1/2 ft).
On 1938-08-02 the New Zealand Ski Jumping Championships were organized and won by Henry Wigley, who jumped over 12 metres (39ft 6in and 40ft 1in) and beat R. McKenzie (2nd place – 24 ft 1in and 22ft 3in) and H. Carter (3rd place – 24ft 3in and 25ft 9in (with fall)).
