Nevertheless the works on the ski jumping facility with five plastic covered hills K125, K98, K60, K35 and K15 continued and in September 2009 the 50 million Euro ski jumping facility was inaugurated with a Continental Cup competition.The first ever FIS Ski Jumping World Cup competition was held in PyeongChang during the 2016/17 as a final test event for the 2018 Olympic Winter Games.
