Luis on tour: A ski jumping hill fan on the road

Luis on tour: A ski jumping hill fan on the road

By Ski Jumping Hill Archive author and photographer Luis Holuch

Hello dear ski jumping people!

This column is about me. No, that's not all. That' not enough. This column deals with my experiences during my visits of ski jumping hills during competitions and during my holiday trips.

Since I was six, I have been a ski jumping fan. It all started when Martin Schmitt had his most successful seasons and Sven Hannawald won the four-hills-tournament by winning all four competitions. That was the first sports event, I really experienced. Here, I will tell about my travels and experiences, which increase my closeness to ski jumping. My first live competition was in Winterberg at St. Georg-Schanze. That was German championships of Nordic Combined. At that time, I did not know, ski jumping is also possible in summer.

Back to the column: Basically it is a holiday dairy, but although I share in my descriptions something about access routes and regards for houses and institutions: This column is no travel guide! I only expresses my experiences and I am not adamant that everything has to be done. Nothing is an advantage for me!

So, these were only the details, in the column you will get to know me better and the people around me, who shared the experiences!

Have fun!
Your Luis Holuch

So this is the first edition: Luis on Tour: Obertsdorf (Part I)

Ich wuerde so gerne auch wieder Schanzen besuchen... Ich bin auch Schanzensteigerin, aber es ist nicht immer einfach, Schanzen zu besichtigen - vor allem weil ich nicht Auto fahren kann.
