History:

At the beginning of the 20th century, Oslo (back then Kristiana) had the Holmenkollen, but Namsos had the Graanhatten - and even though the first efforts were not really successful. The snow on the freshly built ski jump became so hard and compact over night, so that the many falls became even more painful for the jumpers. The landing slope was very steep anyway, which made the spectators and jumpers spending applause to everyone, who could stand their jump.
Another major issue was the ground, on which the ski jump was built. It made the whole facility very narrow and was not clear of rocks and stones, which were also a safety risk. However, the jumpers adopted with the time to this extraordinary hill and accidents occurred less frequently. In 1911, even history was written here: Einar Kasperesen's hill record of 36 meters was also the longest jump in the whole country that winter. His record lasted for five years, until Jonas Engan jumped 37.5 meters, which remained the last hill record.
The main weaknesses of the hill were never erased also due to a lack of money. In addition to that, the wind was constantly present, so that the hill was closed in 1925 after 20 years of use.
