The most important "events" in the history of downhill and slalom in Australia

Well, what do you think - what are the most important events in the history of downhill and slalom? This question has been asked by a friend who's making a skate documentary, and I said I'd help, and now I'm asking everybody to help.

Here's some guidelines:

* an event can be anything - a race, a person, a website, a shop, a bust, an organisation, a death, a discovery of a spot, a visit by an overseas pro etc.

* the event can be positive or negative

* I need a date for when it happened.

I'm particularly interested in things that happened prior to 2005, cos I wasn't around then.

My uncle competed in a slalom race at Catalina raceway Katoomba in about 76, blue mountains have always been on the map.

Uh......Has anyone checked this venue out recently? I'm down with keeping tradition. Looks good on google maps. :)

Yeah Fitz i checked it out a few years back and the surface was terrible.

I think it hasn't been re surfaced since the mid 70S .
