History:

Akureyri is one of the few places in Iceland where ski jumping has developed over the decades.
Ski jumping in Akureyri presisted for a longer time on a slope called Ásgarð. Most Icelandic championship competitions organized by Akureyri have been held there since 1948. Usually, victory in competitions could be secured by jumping around 40-50 meters. In 1971, Björn Óór Ólafsson performed an extraordinary jump of 59.5 m during the Iceland championship, which still is the longest jump in the history of the country's championship. The hill was rebuilt in 1979 with the help of specialists from the United States and Norway and was then called a 45-meter hill.
The last championship in Akureyri took place in 1993.
