History:

The ski club of Hall in Tirol was founded in February 1931 and then immediately initiated the construction of a new ski jumping hill in spring. It was built at the location of an already existing 20-meter hill at Sturmwiese near Glockenhof/Volderwald (actually located within Tulfes municipality), where ski jumping activities had already started before World War I. By the following winter, the ski jump with its wooden inrun structure and take-off was completed. With a critical point of 62 meters it was one of the largest in Tyrol and Austria.
For the Tyrolian state championships in 1934 the Glockenhofschanze or Volderwaldschanze was again improved. Among the participants was also Olympic and World champion Birger Ruud. However, the ski jumping competition was cancelled due to a scandal about a national-socialist demonstration by some of the participants. In 1938 the hill was renovated by national-socialists and also the training hill was enlarged to 40 meters.
After World War II, SK Hall resumed activities on the ski jump, which hosted the Austrian Championships in 1953. Large Glockenhofschanze was probably used until late 1960s. For the 1968 Universiade in Innsbruck it was considered to renovate the hill, but instead a new ski jump was built at Absam, north of Hall.
