Ski jump demolition - the beginning of a new era

To Ski-VM 2011, the demolition of the Holmenkollen jump tower was not a sad but a joyful day. “We look forward to having a new, spectacular ski jump and a wonderful arena which we may enjoy for several years to come. We are very excited about hosting the World Ski Championships here”, Åsne Havnelid, the CEO of Ski-VM 2011, says.


Underground with triple capacity!

Oslo City Council has agreed to implement a modern underground system on the Holmenkollen line rather than a tram line. “We are really happy. Most of the passenger capacity during the World Ski Championships in 2011 is now ensured”, Åsne Havnelid says.


The Holmenkollen Ski Jump is upgraded to K120

The ski jumping hill at Holmenkollen will now be K 120 and not K 118, as was the original plan. This means that we can look forward to seeing jumps of over 140 metres.


The development plan is approved

On Wednesday 18th of June, the development plan for Holmenkollen national arena was given the green light by Oslo City Council. Two new ski jumping hills, a new cross country arena, a new biathlon arena, new entrances, roads and parking areas will be completed by the end of 2009. The construction work, led by Oslo Municipality, started at the beginning of August.
