Vikersundbakken - ski flying hill, Vikersund, Norway

May 31st, 2007 / / Links: Google Earth, Google Maps, Yahoo! Maps, Virtual Earth / Nearest places
 

Vikersundbakken is the only ski flying hill in the nordic countries. With a hill record at 219 meters, Vikersundbakken is the world's third largest ski jumping hill.

The hill was built in 1936 and was rebuilt to a ski flying hill in 1966, when Bjørn Wirkola set a new world record, jumping 146 meters. The hill has been rebuilt and renovated many times, the last time before the 2000 Ski-flying World Championships. The hill is owned by "Stiftelsen Vikersund Hoppsenter", a foundation created by Vikersund IF.

In 2006, Vikersundbakken became the first ski flying hill with permanent floodlights, and in 2007 became the first hill to arrange a ski flying night event.
