Granåsen is a ski jumping hill, located in Granåsen skicenter in Trondheim, Norway. The hill frequently hosts World Cup and Continental Cup competitions arranged by FIS. The hill sports one K-90 hill and one K-124 hill.

Before the 2008/2009 season the hill was improved, and the K-spot is now located at 124 meters while the hill size has been increased to 140 meters.[1] The hill record belongs to Vegard Sklett, who jumped 145 m in January 2009 during a Norwegian domestic competition.[2]

The record for longest jump in a World Cup event is shared by Gregor Schlierenzauer and Simon Ammann who both jumped 140 meters at Granåsen in December 2008.
