Our ski jump on Bergisel mountains contains ski ramp and sports facilities,  public spaces, including a tower-top café and viewing terrace. Rising to a height of almost 50m the structure’s distinctive form (part tower/part bridge) and silhouette extends the topography of the ski slopes below into the alpine sky above.

In December 1999 we won an international competition to design a new ski jump on the Bergisel Mountain in Innsbruck.

Bergisel Ski Jump

Overlooking and visible from downtown Innsbruck, the new ski jump (opened 2002) is a major landmark – one element in a broader refurbishment project for the Olympic Arena. It replaces an earlier ski jump which no longer meets international standards.

Bergisel Ski Jump

The jump itself contains ski ramp and sports facilities, public spaces including a tower-top café and viewing terraces within a single structure. Rising to a height of almost 50 meters, its distinctive form (part tower/part bridge) and unique silhouette pulls and extends the topography of the ski slopes below into the sky above.

Structurally, the jump comprises a vertical concrete tower and spatial green element, within which the ramp and café are both integrated. Two elevators carry visitors to the café, which stands 40m above the peak of Bergisel Mountain, from where they can enjoy the surrounding alpine landscape and watch the ski jumpers below soar across the Innsbruck skyline.
