No ski-jumping hill for Vienna

One year ago the mayor of Vienna had the idea to build a huge ski-jumping hill in his city. Now medias report that the project is dead. There won’t be any chance for ski jumpers to do their sport in Austrias capital.

The two main problems were environment protection reasons and no support from Vienna. The Austrian Ski Association is not able to build such a project without any help. The proposed location of the ski-jump hill was the district of Döbling in the north of the city.

Now the Austrian Ski Association plans a new ski-jumping hill in the province of Lower Austria. “If possible close to Vienna”, confirms a spokesman. Viennas mayor also thinks that the new project should be build close to Vienna, wrote Austrias daily newspaper “Wiener Zeitung”.

    Indoor ski jump arena should built. A 30000-seat arena would be awesome.
