The winter sports club (WSV) of Murau in Styria was already founded in 1894 and around 1900 also the first ski jumping competitions were held. Around 1910, there were three small ski jumping hills at Frauenwiese. At that time, also women participated in the skiing courses and jumped over the hills. In 1933, a 30-meter ski jump was built a Thurnhof with the help of Josef Gumpold, a WSC participant from Gastein valley. In 1935, a 60-meter hill was added and on March 8, 1936 an A-class competition was organized on this Gumpold-Schanze. Bjarne Karlsen, Norwegian coach of the ÖSV, won with a hill record of 56 meters.
After World War II, ski jumping activities already resumed in winter 1946-47. There were two attempts to host Nordic WSC on Mur river, but these applications were not successful. Nevertheless, the "Schanzenkessel" of Murau was constantly improved and extended. Thus, Hans-Walland-Großschanze was constructed in 1968. In 1978, Murau hosted the Junior ESC and in 1982 the Junior WSC with ski jumping taking place on Gumpoldschanze-K81. Later the K85 and also the K116 large hill were hosts of World Cup competitions of ski jumping and Nordic combined. The only ski jumping World Cup in 1994 was won by Noriaki Kasai. The last combined World Cup took place in 1996, winner was Mario Stecher and Bjarte Engen Vik jumped the last hill record.
Today, both larger ski jumping hills are out of order. As the junior hills were dilapidating, in 2005 the K35 and K20 hills were covered with new plastic mattings. In 2007, the inrun of K60 ski jump was rebuilt with concrete and the profile was enewed. Furthermore, during winters a small snow jump is set up for training of children. The ski jumping facility at Thurnhof in Murau was for some time called "KLH-Arena", now it is the "Schanzenkessel".

Laut hat Noriaki Kasai und nicht Takanobu Okabe den Weltcup 1994 gewonnen.

4ST Murau

Das war natürlich ein Fehler, das Springen fand wie immer in Innsbruck statt :-)

4 Schanzentournee

Ich wag ja stark zu bezweifeln, dass 1954 die 4 Schanzentournee in Murau Station machte...

Gab es an der Schanze einen Lift?

Laut Ergebnisliste hat keiner von beiden den Rekord auf der K35 egalisiert

Falsch information

Entschuldigen sie.
der Schanzenrekord wurde von Thomas Schwaiger (AUT, ESV Mürzzuschlag) gesprungen.
ich bitte vielmals um entschuldigung.

Hill Size

On older hills, that had a "jury distance", but are not homologated anymore and don't have a "hill size", the HS stated corresponds to the former jury distance. I think handling it this way makes sense...

Hill Size

Taka mała sugestia, jest tutaj wpisany punkt HS na obu największych skoczniach, ale czy powinien w ogóle być wpisany? Przecież pojęcie to wprowadzono do użytku około 5 lat temu, a skocznie pozostają nieużywane sporo dłużej. Rozumiem, że tutaj dystans HS zastąpił stare pojęcie 'Jury distance' na obu skoczniach, ale jak wiadomo te dwa punkty nie zawsze się pokrywały. Więc nie wiem czy powinno to działać wstecz. Dotyczy to oczywiście wszystkich skoczni, które są zniszczone i nieużywane wcześniej niż powstało pojęcie 'Hill Size'. Co o tym sądzicie?
