New Erzberg Arena built and opened in time

on 2016-08-04

In the beginning of July, the new Erzberg Arena in Eisenerz/Ramsau was opened with a ceremonial act. While in winter, this multifunctional sports facility, could be used provisional, it is now completed and can be used in complete extent. reports about the building measures and also focusses on the importance of this project for the Nordic ski sports in the Steiermark region in Austria.

The facility was already in use during the winter for the provisional training and got completed by the equipment for the summer months. Thanks to this procedure, the athletes and coaches of the training center of Eisenerz and the new-founded club SC Erzbergland were able to continue training and even the planned competitions could be held. The spring break was used for installing the plastic mattings on the slopes of the new ski jumps and also put in the grass for the outruns. In contrast to the old facility, this new facility can be used all year long. The building process for the four new ski jumps, which replace the three old jumps, started in May 2015. These old ski jumps were completely demolished and replaced by new profiled and designed ski jumps. Instead of the old K90 (HS100), the new normal hill is now a K98 (HS109). The old K60 (HS66) was replaced by a new K63.5 (HS69) and the space of the old HS27 is now used for the new HS35. This ski jump has now a neighbor with a HS15.

In addition to the new ski jumps, also the infrastructure was completely updated. The new youth jumps can be reached by a small lift, as the normal and the medium hill can be reached via a chairlift. If necessary and temperatures and weather allow it, the facility can get artificial snow by the new snowing system. Also training and night training is now possible with a floodlight facility. The athletes can now use new changing and waxing rooms as well as lounges.

The certificate of three summer ski jumps in Eisenerz/Tull (HS77, HS42, K19 und K5) was only valid until the end of 2012 and now it will finally be closed and removed next year. These jump, which were built in the 1980’s and the former winter jumps (built in 1997) were not adequate to the standards of the training center and the international ski federation FIS. So, this caused the necessity of works around the ski jumps, which was a quick solved problem. The municipality of Eisenerz founded the new administration company ESAM, which is now responsible for the new multifunctional sports center of Eisenerz. And this is already a story of success, basically, because the schedule of building worked out for the workers. It seems as the invested 8.2 million Euros will be definitely worth spend money in this project. Besides the ski jumps, a biathlon and cross-country center belongs to the facility as well as a boat rental.
