Planica rebuilding

Post by Kofler »

I've heard on our Russian Eurosport that there are plans to rebuild Planica by 2014 to make it the biggest hill in the world again. But i've not found anything on this topic in the Internet (maybe it's because I'm lazy :D ). So, is that true? And what do you think about it?

That's Bloudkovka Velikanka... The construction of the new flying hill hasn't started yet.

A new flying hill? I thought they will rebuild the old one
Admir, no, I did't speak about the normal/large hills being build in Planca ( I think for their 2017 WNSC bid), but about the rebuilds of Letalnica to make it bigger

I talk about Letalnica,they will make new one (or they even started). Commentator said that and its much cheaper to build new one then to reconstructe this one (moving inrun,moving landing zone,moving whole hill,spectator's place and other...)

That's great that Planica will be the biggest hill in the world again, a bit pity that it will not be plain old Letalnica

Sorry for my bad English

Here's an article with a comparison on how the new hill will look with the current as reference. They will be only moving the inrun up, landing area will stay the same, so they won't have as much digging work to do.
