History:

Thanks to a generous land owner, Lismarka Skilag received a hill, where it could build a ski jumping hill in 1920. This man was Nils Bjørnsrud and so the hill was named Bjørnsrudbakken to honor him. Back in the day, it was a K45, but extended to a K60 in 1941. In the same winter, the last documented hill record was jumped by Henry Amdal.
A remarkable memory of the hill was the winter 1927, where it could be jumped until the 17th of May(!). The most important competition took place in 1952, where the Norwegian participants for the Olympic Games in Oslo were selected after the trials. Afterwards, the hill was in use for at least another ten years.
