Geschichte:

Reddish Vale befindet sich westlich von Manchester und am 3. und 4 März 1960 fanden hier zwei Sprungläufe statt, welche von zwei norwegischen Studenten der Universität Manchester organisiert worden waren. Hierzu wurde ein 12 m hohes Anlaufgerüst auf einen Damm aufgebaut, der dann den natürlich Aufsprunghügel darstellte und Kühlwägen brachten Schnee aus Devil’s Elbow in Schottland. Die Weiten lagen nur um die 30 Meter, denn der eigentliche Hintergedanke von Lars Eie und Erik Hoff war, mit diesen beiden gut besuchten Veranstaltungen (ca. 25.000 Zuschauer) Spendengelder zu sammeln, um die Aktionen des damals ausgerufenen Weltflüchtlingsjahres zu unterstützen. Gesamtsieger des Wettbewerbes war Ove Johnson (NOR), der auch den weitesten Sprung mit 106ft. (32 Metern) machte.

I was only 5 years old but I remember the ski jump in reddish vale. I also had people who doubted it happened, so thanks for this article. We should celebrate the events anniversary.

Erik Hoff

A couple of weeks ago in April, 2011 whilst hut touring in Femundsmarka, Norway I met Erik Hoff who told me of his mad cap idea for this event whilst he was studying at Manchester University. Erik, who must now be in his seventies, is still skiing and told me that he had this idea after perhaps too many pints. He told me that they organised the snow to be brought from Scotland in trains in the days when British Rail could perhaps do this sort of thing for nothing more easily than now. They also brought over the Norwegian Ski Jumping Team to put on the show. He recalls that the organisation of the event was far bigger than he had imagined and he had little time to see any of the jumping. An expert jumper himself, he says that he did manage a few spare moments to do one jump but that in his haste he forgot to do up his boots. As he took off he flew through the air minus his skis and boots landing in great pain head first. He didn’t seem to mind too much as the crowd thought that it was all part of the entertainment. His objective was achieved with a large photo of the jumping on the front page of (I think) The Manchester Guardian. He told me that he did have thoughts of celebrating the 50 year anniversary of the event but so far nothing has become of it.

Thought I'd dream't it.

I had a memory off sitting with my friend on a hill in Reddish Vale, "watching ski jumping".We were about 13 years of age.I have related this memory to many a person in this area (DENTON..REDDISH), but they do not have any recollection at all.I realy did start to think I had dreamt it!! Just to have found this info on your site is fantastic. The friend with me was a daughter of the local farmer so we got access via their fields.To bring the snow from Scotland in vans!! What an achievment.Thank's for confirming it did happen. 50 years on and it takes some beating as an unusual event too just happen in what is now called Greater Manchester.Yours with thank's Judith Ridgway
