Already since 1909 there have been ski jumping hills at Bad Mitterndorf, in the Styrian part of Salzkammergut, at Zauchen and later also on Tauplitzalm. With a spirit of optimism after World War II, in 1948-49, the new giant's hill was built below Kulmkogel, near the village of Tauplitz. At that time Hubert Neuper senior was the most promising ski jumping talent from Mitterndorf and was allowed to perform the inaugural jump over 96 meters in 1950. The opening competition was attended by around 10,000 spectators and winner was Rudi Dietrich with a record jump of 103 meters - however, jumps over 135 meters were supposed to be possible.
In 1953, the international ski flying week of the ski flying association KOP (Kulm-Oberstdorf-Planica), predecessor of the ski flying world championships, was held at Kulm for the first time. Winner was Sepp Bradl. Over the following years, the hill was frequently enlarged. After improvements made prior to the 1962 ski flying week, Peter Lesser set up a first world record at Bad Mitterndorf with 141 meters. During this period, a snow jumping hill was often set up next to the ski flying hill during winters. In some years it was even possible to reach distances around 100 meters there. The last competition on it was held in 1975 and after the modernization of Kulm in 1985 it was completely removed.
Prior to the first Ski Flying World Championships at Kulm in 1975, the first wind net was installed to protect ski fliers. A fundamental conversion of the flying hill as K185 took place in 1984/85 for the 1986 SFWC. Furthermore, the wind net was enlarged to a height of 25 m. Side-winds of 8 m/s could thus be reduced to only 2.5 m/s. During those SFWC, Andreas Felder could set up the third and so far last world record at Kulm with 191 meters.
Also the ski jumping ladies haven’t avoided visiting the ski jump, as in 1997 Austria’s Eva Ganster jumped here as the first woman on a ski flying hill on 167 m and didn’t not only enter the Guiness Book of World Records, but set up a new world record in ladies ski jumping. In January 2003 her fellow countrywoman Daniela Iraschko flew in her third jump on 200 m and improved the old World Record by fabolous 33 m!
Lately, for the Ski Flying World Championship in 2016 the flying hill was modernized in 2014. For around 4.2 million Euros the take-off was moved 8 meters higher and 21 meters back on the existing natural inrun, the knoll was enlarged and the landing hill adapted, such that Kulm hill could be enlarged on K200 / HS 225. As part of these works, the construction of three plastic covered junior hills HS 70, HS 45, HS 25 was also planned in order to subsitute the out-dated Heilbrunnschanzen. However, this was never realized.
Ski flying weeks (1953, 1956, 1959, 1962, 1965 & 1968), Ski Flying World Championships (1975, 1986, 1996, 2006 & 2016) and Ski Flying World Cup competitions have long tradition at Tauplitz and the “fascination of ski flying” is always a well-celebrated international sports event at the Kulm. Until today, the ski jump at Kulm is the only ski flying hill with a completely natural inrun.

Kulm Frauenrekord

Den ersten Damen-Skiflugweltrekord hielt Eva Ganster (AUT), welcher Februar 1997 im Rahmen des Skiflug-WC's der Herren aufgestellt wurde. Dort war sie Vorspringerin. Mit 167 m landete sie auch im Guinnes-Buch der Rekorde! Bitte diesen Rekord noch eintragen!

Proszę o poprawkę w datach w sekcji rekordów. Weissflog skoczył 201m 8 lutego 1996 r., Ahonen uzyskał 200m dzień później co znaczy, że nigdy nie był oficjalnym rekordzistą skoczni.

I think Roar Ljokelsoy had the hill record in this hill by 225m for several years before Harry Olli flied further.

Peter Prevc (SLO) hat den eigenen Rekord am Kulm heute um 1 Meter verbessert. Der Schanzenrekord liegt jetzt bei 244,0 m

Inrun length is 117.4 m (as it's written in certificate), not 109.4 m. It has to be corrected.

To skocznia gdzie tam groźny upadek miał Austriak Thomas Morgenstern w piątek 10.01.2014. (na treningu jescze przed sesją kwalifikacyjną)

Auf Skiflugschanzen zählen Schanzenrekord auch im Training.
Die FIS führt auch Severion Freund mit 237,5 Metern als Rekordhalter, siehe z.B.
Startliste von heute.

Schanzenrekorde zählen nur bei Sprüngen während der Qualifikation oder Bewerb. Das bedeutet nach Schlierenzauer
haben Noriaki Kasai mit 225m , Peter Prevc mit 230,5 (beide 9.1.15) und seit 10.1.15 Jurij Tepes mit 231m!!!!!
