History:

In the mid-2000s, there was a debate in Norway whether the out-dated ski flying hill in Vikersund should be extended and modernized, or a new one should be build at another location. It should be located at Rødkleiva in Oslo, not far from the Holmenkollen and next to the so-called “Holmenkollen Vinterpark”. For around 25 million Euros, a new 200-meter ski flying hill with a spectator capacity of 50,000 persons (23,000 seats) was planned. Additonally, a normal hill for the Nordic Skiing Championships in Oslo in 2011 was intended.
The main argument for the new ski flying site was the llong-standing tradition in connection with the Holmenkollen and the concentration of the ski flying hill, the Holmenkollen large hill and the normal hill. However, the area of the intended new national ski flying hill is a natural reserve. Furthermore, there could be similar problems with fog like at Holmenkollen.
Ultimately, the Norwegian ski association “Skiforbundet” decided in April 2005 to modernize the ski flying facility in Vikersund (which only happened in 2010-2011), and build a new normal hill at the site of the old Midtstubakken for the WSC in 2011. This meant the end of the Rødkleiva project.
