Ski Jump Buatan Paling Extrim & tertinggi Di Dunia




my intention today was to write about modern ski jumps (e.g. this beauty, designed by zaha hadid and this one from mr2) but then i came across the photos above and, in an instant, everything else paled into insignificance. there’s just so much to love. look at the height of the thing (165ft by the way). look at the width. look at the amount of scaffolding (14 miles of it). how did people get to the top? imagine actually standing at the top. the mind boggles.
turns out these temporary ski jumps were all the rage back in the black and white days, especially in stadiums, and i’m just so glad because they made for stunning photos. another case in point: soldier field, 1954…
