The Ski Jumping arena and Cross-Country tracks and stadium of the FIS Nordic World Ski Championships 2021 in Oberstdorf (GER) are bustling with activity. The construction work to update both facilities is well underway and visible progress has already been made.
In Oberstdorf’s Audi Ski Jumping Arena, the slope stabilisation measures for the athlete underpass were first completed and now the foundation and walls are currently being created, while further slope stabilisation for the smaller hills has started as well.
The first concrete parts for the guardrails at the landing slope of the large and normal hill have been set and first supply and wastewater lines at the athletes' area are installed. The refurbishment of the concrete of the superstructure covering the Faltenbach-river is also progressing and the exposed core grid can soon be covered with new concrete again.
Work is also progressing at a steady pace in the Cross-Country venue. The first walls of the new function building have been erected. At the water reservoir for snowmaking, the preparatory work for sealing is completed, as well as the pit for the pumping station has been created. The famous “Burgstall ascent” on the track has been widened and secured by reinforced earth.
The majority of construction work will be completed in 2019 with a planned end date of early 2020 to be able to test all facilities in the normal winter operations of the season 2020/21.
