History:

Grytviken is the only settlement on the island South Georgia, which forms a British overseas territory in southern Atlantic Ocean together with South Sandwich Islands.
Ski jump in Grytviken was built before II World War. Norwegian imigrants who lived and worked there constructed the ski jump on the hill behind the only church in Grytviken and often used it. The ski jump was used to spend their leisure time and athletes from different South Georgia whaling station teams competed against each other. Hill record was 39 meters made by Sigurd Hansen from Norway in 1939. Now it is still possible to see wooden relicts of this ski jump.
