Nizhny Tagil

Nizhny Tagil is one of the most important training centers of the country for Russian ski jumpers. In 1970 the skiing center with five ski jumping hills at “Long Mountain” (K110, K90, K40, K20, K10) was constructed.In the frame of the Russian sports infrastructure and culture program the renovation of the “stork” ski jumping facility has started in 2009.

Beside the construction of four ski jumps K120, K90, K60 and K40 with plastic covering and floodlights, stands for 2,000 spectators, ski lifts, a cross-country skiing stadium and trails, as well as a hotel are being built for a total of around 50 million Euro.

During the year 2010 the construction works ceased since financial means were not flowing as promised. After a FIS inspection on May 4, 2011, Russia's ski jumping boss Vladimir Slavsky was concessive so that the works could continue.

The opening and first jumps were held on December 26, 2012. The final of ski jumping Continental Cup was organized at Nizhniy-Tagil on March 16 and 17 and in summer 2013 the first ever ski jumping Grand Prix in Russia was held there.
