Straight to the top from underneath the Rajhovka peak
The goal we set ourselves in Ljubno last year has been reached with great success. Together, with loads of effort, plenty of resources, and especially a lot of love for ski jumping, which the people of Ljubno have felt for more than 80 years, we managed to set up a new, modern ski jumping centre, with the ski jumping hill renovated to meet FIS standards. To top it off, the Slovenian eagles rewarded our efforts with the highest podium spots. I am glad that the national ski jumping centre is becoming not only a home to ski jumping, but also the cradle of talent and a knowledge exchange hub for excellent athletes, who make us proud and carry the name of Ljubno and Slovenia to the very top of international ski jumping.
I am proud that nothing could detract us from our goals, despite the fact that the process of renovating the hill and the ski centre was often incredibly difficult. Now we face new challenges – with optimism and the certainty that anything is possible. This year, we reconstructed and widened the road leading up to the ski jumping centre, and made important steps in building the municipal infrastructure needed for an uninterrupted supply of the area dedicated to tourism and recreation. The ski jump itself was equipped with the newest ice-ceramic in-run track. Next year, it will also be covered with a plastic mass and readied for training sessions and competitions throughout the entire year. In addition, there are also plans to construct a ski lift and various sports fields along the hill, which will enable our visitors to play different sports and help shape a significant sports centre within our region.
Ljubno is definitely much more than just a ski jumping hill, which is why we invite all our friends, as well as all those who are yet to become our friends, to visit and experience the beauty of Ljubno, the warmth of its people, and the courage of our Slovenian ski jumpers.
