The Aist (the Stork)

Yesterday. Today. Tomorrow

Dolgaya hill is the highest point in Nizhny Tagil (379.4 m above sea level). Therefore, in the 60s it was decided to build ski jumping hills. One day the director of the Vysokogorsky Mine Administration Sergey Nikolaev watched ski jumping competition in Sverdlovsk (now Ekaterinburg). After that he wanted to build ski jumping hills in his native city Nizhny Tagil. Soon at the Dolgaya mountain 70-meter hill for competitions and 20-meter hill were build for kids trainings.

In early 1970s, for the Spartakiad of the Peoples of the USSR it was decided to build another 90-meter ski jumping hill and modernize the 70-meter hill.

From then until the middle of the 2000s, Russian competitions of various levels were held at Dolgaya hill. After that, the venue was closed for complete reconstruction. During reconstruction four actually new ski jumping hills (K-40, K-60, K-90, and K-120) were built. Also cross country ski stadium appeared on Dolgaya hill. The ultra-modern venue of jumping hills was open for athletes again at the very end of 2012. From next year, the «Aist» venue entered (was accepted) to the international FIS family.
