History:

In 1951 Viborg Skiklub opened ski jump at Viborg's neighbour small town Bruunshåb. It was possible to jump up to 25 metres there. Opening event was organized on 21st January 1951 with best Danish ski jumpers and Norwegian guests who also participated. Local ski jumper and Viborg Skiklub's president Flemming Schou won Viborg City Council Cup with 21 metres jump. The competition with around 2,000 spectators was the only one in hill history because organizers didn't earn enough money (they got only 17 Danish kroner surplus) - mainly because most of spectators didn't wanted to pay and watched competition from the other side of the creek (hill was located on the north side) near place called Søndermølle, which was free. Also the hill wasn't planned well - jumpers had problems with stopping after jump because outrun was too short and located too near to the creek. Organizers set straw bales to make sure that jumpers won't end in the river but it din't solve the problem - one of ski jumpers broke his arm after hitting one of straw bales and the other one went into crowd and hit young boy in head.
On the other side of Bruunshåb also a smaller ski jump existed during 1950s and was used by local youngsters who tried there to jump.

@KE

Thank you, the location has been updated. Do you have any current photos of this place?

The location of the ski jump is not quite right. It was located approx. 1.25 km to the southeast on the coordinate 56.424679, 9.439816, where traces can still be seen in the forest floor. The place can also be seen on the orthophoto (basic cover) 1954.
