Junior hills at Midtstuen to be completed
One and a half years after the Nordic WSC at Oslo 2011 the construction of the recruitment hills on the Holmenkollen area is going to be finished soon and the inauguration to take place on September 23.
Already within the scope of the profound modernization measures of the Holmenkollen ski jump and the reconstruction of the Midtstubakken normal hill before the Nordic WSC 2011 at Oslo, it was also decided on the construction of a new junior ski jumping center on the foot of Holmenkollen.
But only after the WSC in summer 2011 the construction works on "Midtstulia Rekruttanlegg" had started and now the members of the ski club "Kollenhopp" are about to install the last pieces of plastic matting on the four hills K60, K40, K20 and K10.
Even the "diamond", the former warming room upon the inrun tower of the old, in April 2008 deconstructed Holmenkollbakken, is re-used within the around 60m crownes (8 million Euro) expensive new-construction. Beside the pool, which will be used as a reservoir for snow production in winter, it was installed as a lounge room next to the new hills.
"For ski jumping to survive we have to invest in facilities like this one," is the chairman of Kollenhopp, Roar Gaustad, certain on osloby.no. "This is a wonderful facility. No other facility worlwide can compare to this one!"
On September 23 at 11:45am the official inauguration is going to take place.
