Titlis ski jump at Engelberg shall be modernized

on 2013-12-18

In the forefront of Ski Jumping World Cup in Engelberg, Switzerland, the organizers have announced a modernization of inrun and floodlights of Gross-Titlis-Schanze.

Already since 1980 Engelberg with Gross-Titlis-Schanze has been a constant part in Ski Jumping World Cup. Only a few days before the two World Cup competitions on December 21 and 22, 2013, the local organizers have announced modernization measures for the ski jump worth 2.65 million Francs (2.17m Euro), in order to secure the position as future host.

"For that Engelberg will find its way into the World Cup calendar in the future, it is essential to carry about a third round of modernization," explains the organizer Engelberg-Titlis GmbH. This means especially a renewal of the inrun: "By building concrete elements with appropriate fundaments, it is possible to install a more precise inrun cooling system, and furthermore guarding rails for the track milling machine won't have to be levelled with an effort of several weeks." Furthermore the wooden steps on the inrun were installed already in 1983 and have suffered under weather conditions.

In order to make more flexible TV broadcasts in the eve possible, additionally a new floodlight facility shall be installed. A detailled time schedule for the conversion works on the HS 137 large hill, which was built in 1971 and was modernized in 1983 and 2000-2001, hasn't been provided yet.
