History:

The Icelandic town of Siglufjörður was one of the most important places on the ski jumping map of the country. The first relatively long distances there were achieved on the slope Hvanneyrarskál. In 1939, Stefán Þórarinsson set an Icelandic record of 46.5 m there. In 1946, the record was broken there three times, and the longest distance belonged to Jónas Ásgeirsson with 54 m. Jumping at Hvanneyrarskál certainly took place during the Icelandic championships, incl. the ones in 1963 (longest jump 34 m) and 1973 (52 m).
Then, the splendor of the Stóri-Boli ski jumping hill lasted during the 1960s and 1970s. In 1960, national championship competitions were to take place in Stóri-Boli, but because of the snowstorm they were moved to the smaller ski jump Litli-Boli. Skarphéðinn Guðmundsson, Olympian in Squaw Valley, won with two 40 m jumps. At one of the next championships in Siglufjörður, in 1970, the special guest was the Norwegian nordic combined athlete and coach Dag Jensvoll. As a pre-jumper then he achieved 63 meters, which is probably the longest jump in Iceland so far.
In the 1980s, ski jumping at Siglufjörður moved to a different location - to the new ski jump near the Hóll sports center and the Skútudalur valley. The facility was located on the north-eastern slope of the Hólshyrna Mountain and had artificial lighting and a lift.
