History:

Already around 1940, Kåre Kvanli and some other members of Sørreisa IL started to clear a slope in the Spika area above Sørreisa in order to create a large hill there. However, the work was never completed and so the construction of the hill was only started again after the merger of Skøelv IL and Sørreisa IL to form Sørreisa SL in 1957. In the summer of 1958, the soil works began and the ski jump constructor Tunold-Hanssen was commissioned with the profiling. On March 6, 1960, the inaugural competition took place on the Spika-K69.
In 1963, 19-year-old Bjørn Wirkola broke his skis while jumping there - but still won the competition with a new pair. In 1976, the Northern Norwegian Championship was the biggest - and at the same time the last - competition on the Spika ski jumping hill. Roger Ruud set the last hill record with 75 meters.
