The demolition machines have already removed the tribunes, the commentary boxes and the area around. Even the tarn that was know as “Besserudtjernet” (“The Besserud Tarn”) is gone, drained to “Kongedammen” (“The Kings Pond”) that lies higher up, behind the sports monument. Tomorrow the white icon that is the Holmenkollen Ski Jump will be taken apart piece by piece, starting with the “diamond”.
The deconstruction starts at 16:30 CET=Central European Time=UTC (GMT)+1 hours. You can watch it live and even control the camera here. Another site documenting live is here. The local newspaper Akersposten shows us historic pictures from the beloved place.
The city will not look the same without it as it was visible from all parts of the town and even neighbouring counties. Farvel gamle venn.
