History:

Bjørnstadbakken was inaugurated in 1922. But even before the inrun tower was built, a telephone line from the outrun up the hill was installed. This allowed the jumpers on the tower to ask people at the bottom of the hill if they were allowed to jump.
In 1983, the hill was renovated and a second hill, which was a little smaller, was added. This project was well-documented and so the hill data was saved. The final competition was held in 1997, until 2004 the facility was still used for training.
Ever since, not too much happened in the area, even though it is said from time to time that it should be reactivated. The facility is also in the news frequently due to a shady creature which showed up at the dawn of darkness. However, this mystery never was solved.
