It really is the end of an era. New York has the Statue of Liberty. Paris has the Eiffel Tower. Oslo has, soon to be had, the Holmenkollen ski jump. In about a months time the ski jump will be torn down. The Holmenkollen skiing arena has hosted competitions since 1892. The ski jump has been renovated 18 times, and the current one dates back to 1939. The tower stands as a national and international symbol of skiing after being the heart of Norwegian winter sports in over a 100 years.
