New Year's Ski Jump
Enjoy the flight into the New YeCould there be a better start to the New Year? At least, there won't be a more exciting one, that’s for sure, for the New Year's Ski Jump in Garmisch-Partenkirchen is always a unique experience - in particular, if you are able to see it live. You are so close and can feel the great atmosphere. You hold your breath when these young athletes start their in-run. Then, they take off - and jump down into the depths. Then, there is the flight, elegant and weightless. Finally, the landing is executed in a perfectly skilled Telemark style. Perfect. 30,000 visitors applaud – and you are in the middle of them all.
The New Year's Ski Jump in Garmisch-Partenkirchen is traditionally the second jump of the Four Hills Tournament. The historic tour is one of the highlights of the ski jumping season and it began 60 years ago in a cosy living room in Partenkirchen where ski jumping friends from Innsbruck and Partenkirchen had an idea: "Let's initiate our own "jumping tournament"! No sooner said than done! A few years later, the first tournament began – and it was a great success.
