History:

The ski jump in Viggja was one of the largest of its time in Norway. It was built in its original form in 1927 and in 1929 a hill record of 57 m was set by Johan Arnt Høiseth. In 1934 there was a reconstruction of the Marikollen facility, which included shifting the take-off by 14 m and extending the inrun. After the reconstruction, the famous Reidar Andersen reached 90 m in training there, which was only a few meters shorter than the world record. The official record at that time belonged to Høiseth again with 71 m in 1935.
After World War II the jump was restored to use. In 1949 Torbjørn Falkanger set a new hill record of 84.5 m. In the early 1950s the Marikollen competitions gathered a very large audience. Long jumps certainly contributed to this. Odd A. Brevik in the competition reached an impressive 90 m, and eventually the record was set to 91.5 meters.
In the second half of the 1950s, plans were made to enlarge the facility to allow jumps of 120 meters or more. These intentions have never been realized and instead Marikollen has lost importance in relation to Granåsen in Trondheim and Kløvsteinbakken in Meldal. The last competition at Marikollen took place in 1957.
