History:

Already from 1917 on first small ski jumps constructed at Watertank Hill in City Ski Bowl of Anchorage small competitions were hosted.
The Civilian Conservation Corps then built up the 30 meter ski jump with an impressing wooden trestle for inrun and landing hill in 1939. In the following years many competitions took place, which were mostly hosted by U.S. Army and Anchorage Ski Club. Every year’s highlight was the “Chugach Ski Meet” with competitions in different disciplines. On February 23/24 of 1952 the last competition on this ski jumping hill took place.
