Exhibition

High-Flying Finns

High-Flying Finns – photographic exhibition illuminates the history of ski jumping and offers you the opportunity to experience the excitement of competitions from the climb up the hill to standing on the podium.

From 1920's to 1990's these pictures, equipped with short captions, tell a powerful story. Over the decades, ski jumping has evolved from a pastime for young daredevils to a professional sport. Throughout its history, ski jumping has involved strong emotions: joy, admiration, concentration, tension, excitement and the sense of fellowship.

In the 1950’s and 1960’s ski jumpers were comparable to rock and movie stars in Finland. Ski jumpers were young urban daredevils that had style and grace. The sport had a dramatic and theatrical flair that was lacking in the cross-country skiing scene. Ski jumpers gained a lot of admirers both nationally and internationally.
