You’d either have to be extremely stupid or extremely skilled to try your hand on Norway's Holmenkollen Ski Jump.

These latest pictures of the much-anticipated structure show the sheer imposing scale of the jump which was Designed by JDS Architects.  Norway's Holmenkollen ski jump and its accompanying stands were built in order to facilitate the 2011 FIS Nordic World Ski Championships, and with a capacity of up to 30,000 spectators it goes without saying that those who have the courage to test their metal on this behemoth will have to be at the very top of their game both physically and mentally. Case in point: recent runs on the mammoth structure in the lead up to the 2011 FIS Ski Championships have already yielded jumps of over 120 meters.
