    Trondheim Sports & Outdoors

    Warm-Weather Ski-Jumping is not for everyone, and especially not for me... so my tip is aimed at watching this sport, rather than practising it.... watching means that you can do it in summer, too - and maybe it is even mroe ipressive as this very young jumpers jump and land on "slippery plastic" runs... The Granåsen Ski Jump is the place for it -...
