Ski Jump Tower, Cortina D'ampezzo, Italy, 1956 Winter Olympics Venue Interesting fact about these ski jumping towers is that the Swiss jumper, Andreas Dascher introduced a new style of jumping, which would soon come to be known as the Dascher technique.

Adherents to this new style dominated the competition.
