History:

There had been several temporal ski jumping hills in the Californian metroplois of Los Angeles from 1930's to 1960's.

In 1938 a ski jumping competition was organized again, but that time in “Coliseum”. The inrun tower of the wooden ski jump rose 18 meters high over the seats of the football stadium, ice machines sprinkled 500 t of ice on the jump. The jumpers, one of them twice Olympic Gold Medal winner Birger Ruud of Norway, were celebrated by 88,000 spectators!
