History:

Seattle's local ski clubs held ski competitions at the Civic Ice Arena in November 1939 and 1940. For this purpose, a small downhill slope and a ski jump were built in the indoor stadium. Most of the inrun structure was outside the arena and led in through a window. The world class jumper and jumping coach Olav Ulland also took part in the events, as did Alf Engen in 1940.
After World War II, indoor ski jumping took place again in March 1946 in the Seattle Civic Auditorium. The ski jump in the Civic Ice Arena was rebuilt in November 1956. There was also a ski jumping hill in the National Guard Armory in 1959, in the Seattle Center Exhibition Hall in October 1965, and as part of the "Snow Show" in the Washington State Trade and Convention Center in 1994.
