History:

The ski jumping hill in Tromsø's district Doktordalen was most likely the first one in town as it was built in 1908. Back in the day, it was one of the steepest and largest in the whole country and probably had the biggest total height from in- to outrun. After the local jumper Karl Østlendingbratten beat the 30 meters, the freshly founded ski club sent him to Kristiania (today: Oslo), so that he would participate in the Holmenkollen Ski Festival. Østlendingbratten ended up on a very low rank, but was overwhelmed by the mass of spectators there. However, in his hometown, he was pretty much unbeatable.
In the 1920's, a major conversion of the ski jump took place, which also made the level of ski jumping in town raise. In 1930, Tromsø was supposed to be the host of the Norwegian National Championships. Due to a lack of snow, they had to be postponed to April. As the lack was still there, snow had to be brought to the hill. 150 tons came by truck and were put on the hill with support by a temporary cable car.
In the second half of the 20th century, the level of ski jumping increased even more and so also the need for a bigger ski jump. The location at Doktordalen was not suitable for such a big ski jump and in the 1980's, the ski club decided to close the hill and build a new facility at Grønnåsen.
