JDS Architects completed the Holmenkollen Ski Jump in Oslo, Norway. The International Ski Federation has certified the structure and it is ready to host the Nordic World Ski Championship in March 2011. The Jump passed all the technical and safety standards and was inaugurated in an opening ceremony that included 20 ski jumpers. Rune Vetla had the longest jump at 141 meters. According to some contestants, this is the best ski jump they have ever competed on.

The cantilevered design includes a restaurant/bar at 418 meters where visitors will enjoy views to Oslo and to the fjords. A special feature is the stainless steel mesh that protects the jumpers from extreme wind and fog.
