RAW AIR 2022 will focus on equality

20. mai 2021

- Norway has through the introduction of RAW AIR for Women promoted and supported women ski jumping internationally. More competitions for women in same hills as men will give better opportunities for women and contribute to grow the ski jumping product. Mixed Team competitions also gives good attention to the sport, project leader Ståle Villumstad says.

 

This season RAW AIR is special since Trondheim are being rebuilt for the Ski World Championships 2025 and the tournament must fit into the calendar with Ski Flying World Championship in Vikersund and the Olympics.

 

This week it was decided to have a mixed team competition in Holmenkollen.

 

- A change this year will be to have a Mixed Team competition to create attention around the equality question and have a good competition for both gender in a traditional hill. The points from the competition will not count towards the overall standing in RAW AIR. Whether a Mixed Team competition will be part of RAW AIR in the future must be evaluated based on the experience this year, Villumstad says.

 

- We are happy to host the RAW AIR final at Holmenkollen this year and are looking forward to give it a special boost in our national arena. We are especially delighted to host a mixed competition since we see this as a great innovation for the sport, says Stefan Marx, CEO of Holmenkollen Skifestival.

RAW AIR 2021/22 Edition shorter than normal

19. apr 2021

RAW AIR 2021/22 will be held in Lillehammer and Oslo. The Tournament starts with qualification in Lillehammer on March the 2nd. The final will be in Holmenkollen March 6th.

 

During the calendar meeting in FIS earlier in April, it was decided that the super final in Vikersund won´t be included as normal due to The World Ski Flying Championship a few days later.

 

The 2021/22 edition of the RAW AIR tournament will be different, but the plan is to include both the New Granåsen hill and Vikersund again from 2022/23.

 

- In Vikersund we are sorry that women won´t be able to jump in ski flying in Vikersund already in 2022. It is also a surprise that Vikersund won´t host the super final, which has been included in the plans since September 2020. Anyway, we will do everything possible to create a fantastic World Ski Flying Championship as one of the biggest events for the new season together with the Winter Olympics, Per Bergerud says.

 

He is general secretary in LOC Vikersund.

IT’S RAW, DRAMATIC AND BASED ON NORWEGIAN NATURE AND HISTORY.

18. des 2020

Hadeland Glassworks is one of Norways oldest manufatures. The production of the beautiful glass is still solemnly handmade by competent and talented craftsmen, and they all have a long and detailed background. This year history and great traditions meets the new and exciting, when Handeland Glassworks team up with the RAW AIR team. They have been one of our most important partners in creating the worlds most extreme ski jumping tournament, and today we finally got to launch this partnership. We were also so lucky that we got to see professional glassblowers in action while the designer explained the entire process in detail. And a look at the very first trophy.

The process of creating the trophy was a close cooperation with designer Maud Gjeruldsen Bugge, so that we would able to capture the unique and raw qualities we were looking for. The design she created has a character that reflects Raw Air´s core values perfectly. The trophy is based on Norwegian values, as well as the traditions that comes with the good Norwegian craftsmanship. It weighs nearly 10 kg. and measures approximately 70 cm. diameter. It`s raw, sensational and beautiful.
