History:

In April 1951 ski jumpers from Norway constructed a temporary ski jump with a wooden structure at Braid Hills in Edinburgh. 60 tons of snow were brought over from Norway. There were problems with customs and the British agency wanted to charge 406 Norwegian krones for each ton of snow, but fortunately it was settled before the snow melt. Then a Scottish Ski Jumping Competition with participating athletes from Norway was held and the two days of competition were attended by over 10,000 spectators!
Not far from the former ski jumping site today's "Midlothian Snowsports Centre" with artificial alpine slopes is situated.
