Intervales Ski-Jump Hill at Lake Placid in 2006. They hosted the 1932 and 1980 Winter Olympic ski jumping events.

For the Winter Olympics, there are 26 venues that have been or will be used for ski jumping. From 1924 to 1956, the construction point or K-point of the ski jumping hill was not fixed by the International Ski Federation.[1][2][3][4][5][6][7][8] For 1924, it was 71 m (233 ft); 1928: 66 m (217 ft); 1932: 61 m (200 ft); 1936: 80 m (260 ft); 1948: 68 m (223 ft); 1952: 72 m (236 ft); and 1956: 72 m (236 ft)[1][2][3][4][5][6][7][8]

The first ski jump distance that was standardized was at the 1960 games though it was not measured at the K-point, but at the P-point, which is the landing area of the hill size part of the ski jump area.[9][10] At the 1960 Games, this P-point was 80 m (260 ft).[10] A second ski jumping hill was added in 1964 with a normal hill that had a P-point of 70 m (230 ft) in Seefeld while the large hill of 80 m (260 ft) was located at Bergsielschanze in Innsbruck.[9][11][12] The large hill ski jump P-point was lengthened to 90 m (300 ft) for the 1968 Games at Saint-Nizier-du-Moucherotte while the ski jump P-point at Autrans remained at 70 m (230 ft).[13][14] The ski jumping hills remained in separate locations for both the 1972 and the 1976 Games though the Bergielschanze hill that was used in 1976 had its P-point lengthened from 80 m (260 ft) to 90 m (300 ft).[15][16][17][18] The two hills used would not be combined into one single venue until the 1980 Games.[19] By the 1992 Games, the hills were being referred to by the K-point rather than their P-Point which meant the normal hill P-Point of 70 m (230 ft) had a K-point of 90 m (300 ft) while the large hill P-point of 90 m (300 ft) had a K-point of 120 m (390 ft)[20][9] This standard remained until the 2002 Games when the hills were then by their size (HS) or landing point (L) which is 10 m (33 ft) further than the K-point of a normal hill and 15 m (49 ft) further than the K-point of a large hill.[21][9] The first Winter Olympics to use the HS designation was at the 2006 Games in Turin.[22]

Two of the hills used in the Olympics, Große Olympiaschanze in Garmisch-Partenkirchen for 1936, and Bergiselschanze for the 1964 and 1976 large hill events, have served as hosts for the Four Hills Tournament since the tournament's inception in 1953.[23] Forty-four years later, the Nordic Tournament was created and it involves the 1952 venue at Holmenkollbakken in Oslo's Holmenkollen National Arena and has at times involved the 1994 venue at Lysgårdsbakken in Lillehammer, both in Norway.[24]
