History:

Trambulină Tintina was established in 1941-1942. During this period, Borşa was located in the Austrian-Hungarian Empire, and this facility was to become part of a modern sports complex in the Rodnian Mountains - the designers' ambition was to organize the Olympic Games here. The military club C.S. Honvéd Militar was responsible for the construction of the hill and the work was managed by the vice world champion of 1938 - Stanisław Marusarz, who was sent to Austria-Hungary after escaping from a German prison, where after the outbreak of World War II he was detained by the Nazi occupiers. The name of the hill was a tribute paid by Marusarz to his sister murdered by the Germans - Helena Marusarzówna. On the ski jump it was possible to reach distances up to 90 meters (the longest leap in the 1940s was 88 meters), which made this natural hill one of the largest in the world at that time.
However, Tintina's glory period did not last long. It became a victim of war hostilities already in August 1944, which caused significant damage to it. Although it was restored to use after the war, it never regained the position it had in the 1940s. Borşa became part of Romania, and the communist government was not particularly interested in the development of ski jumping. Stanisław Marusarz, the designer and builder, reminded of the ski jumping hill in 1968. Thanks to his intervention in the 70s, they began again to host international competitions of Eastern Bloc countries (such as Spartakiads). The hill in this form was used until 1981 and its record was 96 meters.
In 1981, local activists initiated a significant reconstruction of the hill, whose construction point was enlarged to 110 meters. Two years later the FIS certification was obtained, and in 1984 Lorincz Balint was the first to cross the symbolic mark of 100 meters on it. In the following year Polish ski jumper Bogdan Zwijacz set a hill record of 113 m. At the end of the 80s the construction of two smaller jumps K75 and K30 began. Unfortunately, the very advanced works could not be completed, only a month of work to open the facilities was to be done, but then the Romanian revolution and the overthrow of the Ceaușescu dictatorship meant that Trambulină Tintina was completely abandoned.
The largest ski jumping hill in Romania was not used during 1990s. It wasn't until 1999 that it was reactivated with hosting the national championship, which was won by Florin Spulber, setting a new hill record with a jump of 118 meters, which was also the Romanian record for the next several years. The national championship also took place here a year later, but the hill was only sporadically used until 2003. However, the low number and level of Romanian jumpers at that time meant that the hill was too big for them and the competitions here had a poor turnout among starters. Finally, the jump was abandoned for good and has been gradually taken over by nature since then.
Since the closing of the hill, proposals for its reactivation and reconstruction have repeatedly appeared, thanks to which Romania would gain the only large hill in the country, complementing the last missing element to the complex at Râșnov. However, these ideas have not yet gone beyond the phase of initial plans and the probability of their implementation is very low. Only recently, in early 2019 the major of Borşa launced another attempt for the reconstruction of Tintina with a total of 6 ski jumping hills.
