Granåsen large hill seriously damaged

on 2011-06-02

A landslide has spoilt the plastic covering of the WSC hill of 1997 in Trondheim already last week. This is especially annoying, because the ski jumping facility was renovated elaborately over the last years.

After a landslide last week a fixture net at Granåsen-K123 broke, so that parts of the plastic mattings on the landing hill became loose. As a consequence for now the large hill can't be used for ski jumping anymore. Luckily the adjacent K90 is not affected and the defects should be repaired as soon as possible.

In fall 2007 a totally 60 million crownes (around 7.7m Euro) expensive renovation process on the WSC ski jumps of 1997 had started with the installation of a new SKI-LINE inrun track on K120. In summer 2008 the large hill was new-profiled as a K123 and one year later both hills were covered with new plastic mattings.

Already in 2010 another 16m NOK (2m Euro) had to be invested for reparation works, which lead to a lot of public criticism. Since serious constructive defects appeared now again, the concernment of the city authorities of Trondheim and in broad public is quite big.
