History:

Blyberget (195 meters) is a small mountain in Sverresborg, which is East to Trondheim. Due to its steady slope angle, it turned out to be an appropriate location for constructing a ski jumping hill, which was built in the late 1870's. As well as many ski jumps back in the day, Blybergbakken was an all-natural ski jump. It became a hotspot for ski jumping in the region around Trondheim. A highlight of that period was a competition in 1889, where 74 participants competed in front of 5,000 spectators.
One aspect, which made the ski jump memorable where the performances of Gustav Bye. The bold Norwegian jumped 30 meters in 1892, which was just 1.1(!) meters below the World Record back in the day! In the same year, he also won the King's Cup on the same hill.
By the turn of the century, the interest in the ski jump decreased, since the hill profile was not adopted to the newer jumping styles. However, the hill itself existed until 1940, but was rather kept as a memory place for the early stages of ski jumping. On the east side of Blyberget, there is now a downhill slope with floodlights.
