The new ski jump moved into the international spotlight on January 4, 2002, as the 3rd jump in the Four Hills Tournament in Innsbruck.

Austrian State Award for Architecture 2002

"The ski jump is a compact piece of functionality; an apparatus for this high-performance sport that has been shaped with mathematical precision. The architectural challenge was to embed an new element into the existing frame: the restaurant and the panorama terrace."

The ascent

Athletic individuals can take the 455 steps from the eastern entrance of the stadium to the ski jump tower by foot.
It is much more convenient and faster however, to ascend to the tower with the new inclined elevator.
The elevator transports up to 350 people per hour, covering the 250 meter stretch between the entrance and the tower in 2 minutes.
Visitors get on the elevator here and ride up to the "Bergisel Sky" restaurant.

The tower

The shaft of the tower is built on a 16 by 20 meter foundation plate in which three basement storeys are located for technology, storage and staff rooms as well as the entrance storey.
A three-storey steel construction has been added to the tower's concrete shaft, containing the restaurant, panorama platform and rescue station.
The projecting levels protrude up to 12 meters beyond the tower's shaft.
The visitor elevator travels up to the terrace level of approx. 43.5 meters.

The in-run ramp

The original design for the competition project originally included a continuous beam reaching over four areas with three support pillars.
However, the supporting structure for the steep in-run bridge was then executed with no supports over a 68.5 meter long incline with an incline of up to 35 degrees; a so-called "fish stomach", consisting of a steel lattice formwork trough with steel trusses.
Hereby the preload force is transferred into the stiffening girder as compressive force.
The end cross girders and the spatial diagonal piping in the support frame take on the lateral distribution of the centric preload forces in the lateral frame supports.
