As part of an ongoing vacation contest series, Airbnb converted the Holmenkollen ski jump high above the Norwegian capital of Oslo into a stunning penthouse apartment.

“Set at the top of the ski jump where champions prepare for flight, the apartment’s floor to ceiling windows give you one of the best views imaginable of Oslo, snow capped mountains and endless forest,” the listing reads.

The ski jump, which is surrounded by some 930 miles of terrain, boasts its own rooftop terrace for stargazing and Northern Light displays.

To get to the private suite, guests can either climb up the 250 stairs or take the elevator. On their way out, there’s the more thrilling option of a zip line. “Please do not apply if you are scared of heights,” the contest rules read.

Want to try and secure yourself a stay? Unfortunately the contest is now closed and the winners have been announced — but here’s hoping Holmenkollen opts to continue renting out the space in perpetuity. It looks so damn cozy.
