Râșnov Ski Jump (Romanian: Trambulina Valea Cărbunării) is a ski jumping hill located within the Râșnov Sports Complex, in the Cărbunării Valley, southeast of Râșnov, Romania. The 90-meter hill was designed by a Romanian architect and opened in 2012. It is the country's second largest ski jumping hill after the disused 110-meter Tintina.[1]

The whole ski jumping complex consists of four hills, with K-points of 90, 64, 35 and 15 meters, respectively.[1]

The three other smaller hills were designed by the Austrian architect Christian Aske.


Râșnov ski jumping hill has been in existence since 1936. The newly built jumps are located on the outskirts of Râșnov, three kilometers southeast of the city center. The hill record is 100.5 meters, set on 18 February 2013.[1]

The project was supported by a public–private partnership between the Ministry of Regional Development and Tourism of Romania and the Austrian oil company OMV, which owns the Romanian subsidiary Petrom.[1] The investments were estimated at €15 million.[2]


All four ski jumps are equipped with floodlight facilities, lifts, snow cannons and plastic mats, which allows them to be also used in summer.


The first official competition hosted was the inaugural round of the 2012 FIS Cup summer edition, held on 9 May 2012. The event attracted the participation of the notable ski jumpers Thomas Morgenstern, Robert Kranjec and Roman Koudelka. Between 18 and 22 February 2013, the large hill hosted the ski jumping events at the European Youth Olympic Winter Festival.[3]

In 2013, the venue hosted the final round of the FIS Cup summer edition (on 28–29 September). In the 2014 season, it also hosted a round of the FIS Cup winter edition (on 22–23 February) and a round in the ladies' calendar of the FIS Ski Jumping World Cup (1–2 March).[4]

In the 2015 season, the venue will host again a two-day round in the ladies' calendar of the FIS Ski Jumping World Cup (7–8 February).[5]
