Kulm (ski flying venue)

  (Redirected from Kulm (venue))

Kulm is a ski flying hill located in Tauplitz/Bad Mitterndorf, Styria, Austria.[1] Opened on 8 March 1950, the hill is one of only five of its type in the world, allowing for jumps of more than 240 metres. The current hill record of 244 m was set by Peter Prevc during the 2016 Ski Flying World Championships. The women's world record of 200 m was set by Daniela Iraschko-Stolz in 2003, who remains the only woman in history to have jumped to 200 m. Furthermore, the men's world record has been set three times at Kulm.
