4-time Olympic champion Simon Ammann is godfather of the Moving Carpet of his home hill
"For more than 18 years we have been talking about having such a Moving Carpet," explains Paul Egloff, President of the Mattenschanze Wildhaus Association, visibly relieved. With the commissioning of the Moving Carpet, a long and arduous journey is now a thing of the past. Not only for the ski jumpers themselves, but also for all the officials who made the effort to install it.
Due to the local conditions as well as the average steepness of 33% (normally max. 25%), even a special permit from the Swiss Cable Car Association was necessary.
Simi's Moving Carpet" was inaugurated and christened by none other than 4-time Olympic champion Simon Ammann, who learned to ski jump at the Wildhaus ski jumping facility.
Sunkid is especially pleased to be able to contribute to extraordinary projects like these and wishes the young ski jumpers numerous successes in the future!
