Hill size

Hill size (HS) is a measurement for the size of a ski jumping hill. It is calculated based on the technical data of a hill based on radius, angle of inclination and record distance. Since mid-2004, hill size became the official measurement for the size of hills, replacing construction points, which however remain the basis for issuing points. The distance is measured as a straight line from the takeoff to the knoll, and then follows the landing surface until reaching the hill size point. The world's largest hills are Vikersundbakken in Vikersund, Norway and Letalnica Bratov Gorišek in Planica, Slovenia with hill size of 240 meters. The hills normally mark the hill size physically with a horizontal line across the hill.
