A  Ski jumping hill, i.e. a facility used for ski jumping.

How to map

Draw a straight line for the entire ski jumping hill, from the start of the in-run to the end of the landing area, in the direction of travel. Oneway is assumed.

Optional: In addition to the straight line, an area with the same tag may be added for the landing zone of the hill, and if desired also for the structure of the in-run. Include area=yes. This is similar to the combination of ways and areas used for mapping piste:type=downhill.

Useful combinations

Other optional tags for the ski jumping hill:

  • name=* -- The name of the ski jumping hill. Often combined with the K value or the HS value (see ref below) of the hill if there are several ski jumps of different sizes in the same facility, e.g. "Lysegårdsbakken HS138". Put this tag on the straight line described above.
  • ref=Kxx/HSxx -- Could be K90, K120, HS100, etc, i.e. the value of the hill's  Construction point (K) or its  Hill size (HS). Add this tag to the straight line described above.
  • piste:takeoff=yes -- Add this tag on an additional node on the piste way at the edge of the jump (take-off table) to mark the take-off point.
  • man_made=ski_jump -- For the physical in-run structure/tower itself (if a physical structure exists). May also use building=yes if applicable.

In the past some mappers have tagged the landing zone with piste:type=ski_jump_landing. This separate tag is not necessary as the lower part of a ski jumping hill below the take-off point is always the landing area.
