LOCATION: Planica, 4283 Rateče - Planica

The Planica Nordic Ski Centre is a national project which includes the renovation of the existing ski jumping centre and the construction of a new cross-country skiing centre. The entire complex will permit the organisation of top-level international competitions from the viewpoint of the number of visitors and particularly from the viewpoint of organisational logistics of simultaneous ski jumping and cross-country skiing events. The project was chosen through an open competition. One of the major renovation challenges is Bloudek’s old Giant Ski Jump and the ski flying facility designed by the Gorišek brothers. They are both under national technical heritage protection and need to be redesigned and extended under the current FIS standards. The project defies Bloudek’s engineering skills and innovation with bold constructional solutions and forms.
