History:

The construction of Kløvsteinbakken at Meldal was started in 1946 and first trial jumps could be performed in December 1947, whereby Lindboe Hansen jumped up to 80 meters. In February 1948 finally the inauguration of the ski jump was organized and Torbjørn Falkanger jumped a first hill record of 70.5 meters.
In 1964 the enlargement of the ski jumping facility with a 90 and 70 meter hill was started. The new K87 was completed in 1966 and re-opened in 1967. During Norwegian Championships in 1970 winner Bjørn Wirkola jumped incredible 104 meters on Kløv­stein­bakken. With Lars Grini in 1974 and Johan Sætre in 1980 Norwegian Champions were crowned at Meldal in the following years, too. Even a world record in ladies ski jumping of 73.0 meters was set up at Meldal by Anita Wold on 1973-03-22.
From 1980 to 1982 the ski jumping facility was again converted for 462,000 crowns. One year later FIS certificate for the new K105 was generated and in 1984 again the NM organized. Winner in front of a crowd of approx. 5,000 spectators was Rolf Åge Berg, but Vegard Opås set up a new hill record of 108 m.
The only World Cup competition at Meldal was organized in 1988. Due to strong wind only one round could be completed, but nevertheless Eirik Johnen won with a new hill record of 111 m. In the same year the three smaller ski jumping hills K40, K25 and K15 were constructed. Further Norwegian Championships were hosted in 1990 and 1996.
The next conversion was necessary in 1997. For 1.5m crowns the large ski jump was modernized as a K105 / HS 117 and additional 250,000 crowns were spent on the renovation of the smaller ski jumping hills. At the inauguration within the scope of NM 1998 Kristian Brenden jumped an over one decade valid hill record of 120 meters.
Still today the ski jumps of Kløvsteinbakken are regularly used for championships of juniors and seniors, as well as Norges Cup competitions.
