a new definition of recycling and repurposing

 When I travel, I normally go for the cheapest accommodation possible because I can hang out inside at home. This is the one place I would go just for the hotel. And it is the one place that makes me grateful for winter at this time of year.

What an amazing idea and repurposing of a space!

It was the site of the 1952 Winter Olympics and still sees some of the most daredevil ski jumpers from all over the world flying off its ramp into the Nordic sky. But at the very top of the superstructure, where competitors would anxiously await their take-off in front of up to 30,000 spectators, the little elves of AirBnB thought this would make a great place to transform into a cozy 200ft high penthouse and give away a free nights stay.
Après ski will never be the same again…

The Holmenkollen was first built in 1892 when it hosted a ski festival which is still celebrated every year as part of the FIS Ski Jumping World Cup and the FIS Nordic Combined World Cup.
During the Second World War, the venue was used as a military installation but since 1923, it has doubled as a the world’s first and oldest ski museum
