In 1923 the first Ski Games of Lahti were hosted and have taken place every year from then on, with some exceptions. The first WSC at Salpausselkä ski stadium was held in 1926 on at that time a K40 ski jump. This one was situated on the opposite site of today’s spectator stand. For the next World Championships in 1938 the ski jumping hill and stands were enlarged and 100,000 spectators watched Norway’s Asbjörn Ruud winning.
The next conversion took place in 1957 and one year later 67,000 spectators were victims of Finland’s Juhani Kärkinen becoming new world champion with a hill record of 74 meters. A new spectator record of 114,082 visitors was registered during Ski Games of 1964 wand two years later the very first team competition was held at Lahti with the GDR winning. In 1970’s the construction of a completely new ski jumping hill at today’s place started and in 1977 it was inaugurated. One year later Lahti was again hosting the WSC and East-German Matthias Buse won the normal hill, on the large hill Finland’s Taipo Räisänen gathered a surprise-victory.
With the introduction of Ski Jumping World Cup in 1979/80 Lahti has been part of the circus of world’s best jumpers from the beginning on. For the World Championships 1989 on the hill K114 and K90 on ten days 450,000 spectators came to Lahti and previously the ski jumping facility was set up in today's condition in 1985. Then in 2001 the Nordic Ski WSC took place for a sixth time at Lahti on Salpausselkä ski jumps K116 and K90 and in 2005 the 80th Lahti Ski Games were celebrated.
Also in 2017 the Nordic World Ski Championships are going to take place in Lahti and therefore "Salpausselän hyppyrimäet" shall get modernized. The normal hill was already renovated in 2013 and now has a Hill Size of 100 meters.

Salpausselka K116 - K120?

Czy po remoncie jaki duża skocznia przechodzi w tym roku jej punkt K będzie wynosił 120 metrów?

Yes, there is a pool in the outrun of the biggest jump.
But - of course - only on some days in summer
