The arena in Holmenkollen - A story of extreme renovation


Superski has shop and ski workshop in the Holmenkollen national complex. As they say about the three important things: Location, location, location.

Holmenkollen is the core area for over a hundred years of historic skiing events.

Over the years, the arena has been "refurnished" to a rather extreme degree. When talking about the "finish area", the "change field" or the "start" in Holmenkollen, misunderstandings easily arise. It all depends on which vintage is being referred to.

Drama at the finish line. The duel between Brå and Savjalov is probably one of the most famous moments from the Holmenkoll arena. During the World Cup in 1982, the goal area was in a different place than today. Facsimile/Photo: Erik Thorberg
