Summer ski jumping

During our stay in Nordseter we visited the Lysgårdsbakkene Ski Jumping Arena in Lillehammer and watched a training session of ski jumpers on both the 90m and 120m hill. Of course it´s a wintersport and not the same thing in Summer, but it was fun to watch and we enjoyed seeing it from so close.

The arena opened in 1993 for the 1994 Winter Olympics, where it hosted the ski jumping and Nordic combined events, as well as the opening and closing ceremonies.

According to Wikipedia 20,000 jumps are made here during the Summer season, and 80,000 in Winter. Aren´t they daredevils!

I´m linking to All Seasons.
