The first small ski hill at Ounasvaara in Rovaniemi was set up in February 1927. On December 11, 1927 the permanent 30 meter hill was inaugurated. This jump had been used until 1947, the final hill record was at 43.5 meters by Vasko Feodotoffin and Timo Murama.
Inbetween this period, Pöy­liö­vaara large hill was built up in 1935-36. At the opening competition on 1937-03-29 Timo Murama jumped the longest distance with 71 meters and in 1941 Lauri Pietikäinen improved the hill record on 74 m. On 1944-08-10 the wooden ski jump, on which now distances of nearly 80 meters were jumped although it was quiet windy, was destroyed during the Lapland War, where it was used as a air surveillance tower.
In 1947 again a 50 meter hill made of wood was constructed at Ounasvaara and called "Keskari". This hill became victim of fires twice in 1956 and 1976.
Already before in 1961 the construction of the forefather of today's K90 hill with concrete tower was started. During the inauguration in 1962 Pekka Yliniemi jumped 87 m. This record was only crashed in 1965 when Martti Niemi jumped 89.5 m and then even improved on 90 meters by Raimo Ekholm in 1968. Then the jump was converted in 1976, when mainly the take-off was shortened by 1 meter. After that Esko Rautionaho and Jouko Törmänen jumped on 94 m. Another modernization took place in 1990, when the hill was also covered with plastic mattings and equipped with a porcelain inrun. As a consequence it became possible to fly longer than 100 meters.
The smaller jumps of Ounasvaaran Hiihtoseura were constructed in 1950’s at Sorkku, at the southern side of Ounasvaara. But these K35, K25, K15 and K6 were destroyed in 1987, when a new road was constructed. In fall 1987 at Ounasvaara new K25, K15 and K6 ski jumping hills were built a compensation, and short time later an additional K36, too.
The Nordic Juniors World Championships took place in Rovaniemi in 2005 and furthermore Ounasvaara HS 100 has been part of Continental Cup since the early 2000's.
The inrun of HS 100 hill is modernized for around 320k Euro in summer 2014. The new combined track for summer and winter with integrated cooling system shall be more reliable during winter. Furthermore the construction of a large hill is planned.

K64 twice

K64 is listed as single hill and in further jumps and it should i think be removed from further

For you to know. Rovaniemi City (FIN) has nothing to do with city Oulu or river Oulu. Oulu is completely in different region (check the map, it's easy today). There are two river crossing here in Rovaniemi but the names are (in Finnish) Kemijoki and Ounasjoki.
Otherwise, the information of Lappish ski jumping center was quite okay.
Happy everything to you. From Rovaniemie with love
