Long Description:

Mammoth ski jump (K-185) at Certova hora (Devils mountain), is the biggest ski-jump in a ski jumping complex in town Harrachov (Krkonoše Mts., Czech Republic) and also the only mammoth ski-jump in the country.

Harrachov is dominated by the famous centre for ski-jumps on Certova Hora, called "Certák", located directly above the town. The first ski jump in Harrachov was built in 1920. With the construction of the new ski resort with standard cross-country skiing tracks, ski slopes and in particular ski jumps in 1979 the most famous era of Harrachov began. Sportsmen practise almost all year round on total 8 ski jumps, some of which are made of plastic. "Certák" is most notable for being one of five ski flying hills in the world and for this purpose was also constructed this mammoth ski-jump. The FIS Ski-Flying World Championships 2014 took place here in March 14-16, 2014.
