The form of the new ski jump, which replaces the previous Olympic facilities, was developed from the dynamics of the sport and takes up the topography of the site. The steel, bridge-like landing structure extends the gradient of the base slope upwards, linking the actual ski jump with the ground. A diagonal lift parallel to a steep “Jacob’s ladder” staircase ensures a quick link with the top. The load-bearing steel structure of the actual jump consists of a four-chord truss with lateral framing and with a changing trapezoidal cross-section.
