History:

Ski club Arlberg was already founded in 1901 and in January 1904 it organized the very first "general ski race" with alpine, cross-country and ski jumping races at St. Christoph, situated at over 1700 m altitude above St. Anton am Arlberg. The 5th winter sports festival of Skiklub Arlberg was held in May (!) 1907 and for this occasion captain Dr. von Eccher constructed a ski jumping hill, which allowed jumps over 15 meters.
Around the same time, there were also the Rosanna senior and junior jumping hills right next to the hostel of St. Christoph. Rosannaschanze, which was named after Rosanna river and valley, was probably the largest and most modern ski jump of Austria during that time. During an international competition in March 1909, world record holder Harald Smith set a hill record of 33 meters and to a big surprise, local hero Hannes Schneider also equalized that distance. For the May races, in 1920-21 a new, natural ski jumping hill was built, which was named after Norwegian ski jumper John Helland and allowed jumps over 40 meters. Presumably, the ski jumping hills at St. Christoph had been used until 1930s.
Still before World War I, at St. Anton the larger Rendlschanze was built, which also set standards. It had probably been used until 1930s.
