Ski jump in Skalite

SD/HD Mute

This ski jumps complex on Skalite slope in Szczyrk consists of three jumps: large one – K-95, middle one – K-70 and a small one – K-40. Currently, it’s a place where trainings take place along with national and international ski jump championships.

First championships in Skalite took place in 1937. Back then, the jumps were 40 metres long. Only after World War II, they modified the jump which made it possible to jump as far as 70 metres on Polish championships in 1948.

It was modified again in the 70s, this time based on the Olympic jump in Holmenkollen. It’s record was 86,5 m then. The jump was modified again in 2007-2008 in order to adjust it to Junior World Championships which were moved to Zakopane anyway. During the inauguration of the new jump, Łukasz Rutkowski made a new record – 104 metres. A few days later, Piotr Żyła flew half a metre further. Later on Maciej Kot and Krzysztof Miętus also jumped further.

Krzysztof Leja is the latest record holder with 116 metres.
