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 and also hosted the FIS Nordic World Ski Championships 1997. 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.
