History:

Already in 1902, history was written at Tranberg a little North from Gjøvik: Hilda Stang set a new women's record with 14.5 meters.
However, the first real ski jumping hill was built three years later and, logically, was called Tranbergbakken. In 1907, the first competition wih jumpers from all over the country took place. Again three years later, Hilda Stang improved her world record to 21 meters.
In 1922, Tranbergbakken became the venue of the Norwegian National Championships, in which also Crown Prince Olav was a participant.
At the end of World War II, the ski jump was completely renovated and enlarged. There were another conversions in 1955 and 1959, which were funded by the community with 5,000 (around 475) and 25,000 Norwegian Crowns (around 2,800 Euros).
In 1959, the Norwegian National Championships again took place on Tranbergbakken. Already on the training day of the Nordic Combiners, Tormod Knutsen set a new hill record with 72.5 meters, which never was beaten after.
After another two conversions for 31,000 (around 3,000) in 1972-1973 and 120,000 Norwegian Crowns (around 11,500 Euros), there was another big event on this important hill: The National Championships for the 14- and 15-year-olds in 1983.
