YEKATERINBURG, November 10. /TASS/. A 30-meter high ski springboard on the Uktus mountain (in the city of Yekaterinburg, Sverdlovsk region) will be relaunched on November 13 after 13 years of neglect, the Uktus mountain ski center’s press service said on Thursday.
“The 30-meter high springboard has been out of service for 13 years but from November 13 anyone interested will have an opportunity to utilize it. This is the only remaining springboard, there were also a 40-meter and a 70-meter high springboards but they were destroyed,” the press service elaborated.
The springboard has been cleared of bushes and the snow on it is now being thickened. “Ski jumpers from the local youth sports center will no longer have to travel to the city of Nizhny Tagil to train. Besides, a day before the launch, four mountain ski routes as well as three chairlifts will be opened on the mountain,” the press service added.
The Uktus mountain ski center, the only one mountain ski complex within the Yekaterinburg city limits, is located on the highest point of the Uktus mountain range, the Tatishchev mountain. The center occupies around 424 hectares, with its highest point measuring 385.2 meters.
