History:

For many years, Valldal IL did not have a proper ski jumping hill. This changed in 1932, when teacher Petter Waldal returned to the village as a pensioner. Waldal was a huge ski jumping fan and motivated his fellow citizens for his project. Within two years and without any costs, the activists built Heggelibakken. Especially the 80-meter-long and 18-meter-high inrun tower was simply outstanding. Not only due to its size, but also because there were four guest rooms inside.
The spectacular facility quickly became very popular and was inaugurated during the Norwegian National Championships in 1934, which was a huge honor. Sverre Lislegård stood the first hill record of 53 meters in this event. In 1946, the ski jump was renovated and slightly enlarged. This also allowed Kjartan Lilleås to jump a new and final hill record of 58,5 meters in 1952.
With the years, the wooden construction became older, outdated and also started to rod. The ski jump head was finally demolished in 1989 and only a few remnants are left.
