License to fly – Ski Flying Hill Oberstdorf will be modernised

Extensive reconstruction and reorganisation measures are carried out in order to make the world-famous Heini Klopfer Ski Flying Hill fit for the FIS Ski Flying World Championships in 2018. After all parties involved had given their firm commitment for financing in the past months, the path is free for the modernising measures.

The characteristic feature of the Ski Flying Hill Oberstdorf, the freely projecting inrun tower, shall be preserved and the profile shall be updated. A new judges’ tower will be installed to provide the judges with an optimal position and view. The 42-year-old double chair lift will be replaced by a modern inclined lift during reconstruction. Further measures apply to the infrastructure in the spectator area, the emergency routes and the water supply for snow-making. The athletes‘ village will be moved to the lower stadium area, the sports technology will be modernised.

At the end of 2016 at the latest, the works will be finished, so that from 3rd to 5th of February 2017 the large comeback of the FIS Team Tour and at the same time the Pre-WSC and final test for the FIS Ski Flying World Championships in 2018 can take place.
