World Record at the World’s Largest Hill

World Record at the World’s Largest Hill

Before the Trial World Championships in 2011, a new, comprehensive development of Vikersundbakken was completed; the hill became a full-fledged K-195, and declared the world’s largest ski-flying hill. During the Trial World Championships, Johan Remen Evensen flew down to a fantastic new world record of 246.5 meters. In 2011, further development at the hill was done before the World Championships in February, 2012. The expectations for the World Championships in 2012 were sky high, and were met. With more than 60,000 spectators and a record high number of television viewers, this became the all-time high World Championships in Ski-Flying! In February 2015 Peter Prevc is writing history. He is the first human that have jumped 250 meters on ski. But the same weekend Anders Fannemel beet this record with 251,5 meter. What a weekend in Vikersund. We look forward to World Cup 12.-14. February in 2016.

Park your car at the bottom of the ski jump, and walk up the road on the right. It will take around 30 minutes. Follow the sign "Vingen". That is the name of the skijump tower. Great view from the top to Norefjell and Gaustadtoppen! Well worth the visit!

Great view from the top, steps were narrow but close together, in places there was a hand rail, the world records were placed on the steps so you could picture the distance that was jumped and at the top there were toilets and a café. the names of the mountains were named. There were also other jumps of varying distances... More

The ski jump is impressing, but there is nothing around but clay and snow. There was no money left for landscaping, and if it is mild, you will stay and watch the competition in clay. Neither are there proper roads, so visitors must park miles away an either walk or be transported in minibuses. When the competition is over, everybody... More
