Facts about the Midtstubakken ski jump

Midtstubakken will be completed in 2010. It will be used for ski jumping (normal hill) at the World Ski Championships in 2011.


Towering landmark

In september 2009, Hagbarth Vogt-Lorentzen, project manager at Terramar, held a status review of the major building project at Holmenkollen, together with a group of engineers and architects. It is plain to see that the arena is really starting to take shape.

New arena and new cross-country tracks

The New Holmenkollen national arena includes a brand new ski arena, new cross-country tracks and the new Midtstubakken ski jumping hill – in addition to the Holmenkollbakken ski jumping hill. “It will be a fantastic arena for spectators and athletes alike”, Roy Evensen, Event Manager for Ski-VM 2011, says.

A modest sporting arena close to nature

Holmenkollen national arena has an all-encompassing design and a construction which reflects ski sports as outdoor disciplines. A connection to the woods and the use of natural materials from the area is important. Another important issue is that the facilities will be functional for everyone who uses it, also after the WSC.
