History:

The town of Truckee is the birthplace of California ski jumping. Already at the turn of the 19th and 20th centuries, there were jumping shows as part of the "Winter Carnivals" and the first, unstable ski jumps were built. In 1930 in the area called Hilltop a ski jump was built according to the guidelines of the famous athlete Lars Haugen. It had artificial lighting, thanks to which on January 18, 1931, the first night jumping competition in the history of the US West Coast could be held. The ski jump was still functioning in the 40's, then it was demolished. There is now a restaurant near the site of the old inrun.
