History:

In the history of Czech ski jumping Špindlerŭv Mlýn (Spindler Mühle) in the Giants Mountains, situated about 25 km east of Harrachov, belonged to the most famous centres. Today it is a small but much recommended winter sports place with many travellers every year at which even Alpine Ski World Cup takes place sometimes.
The first historically mentioned jumping hill stood already in 1905 near the Hotel Esplanada and later in the 1920’s a ski jump existed in Milscherloch.
In 1934 the construction of the “Elbgrundschanze” began, which fast opened in 1936. On the largest ski jump in Czech area at that time a Japanese athlete jumped a hill record of 81 m. In there the German championships were carried out with a new hill record of 81.5 m performed by Sepp Bradl.
But also smaller ski jumps were frequently used. In Svatý Petr (in English Saint Peter), a village 3 km away, where already since 1906 a jump had been standing, especially for these championships the “Klausengrundschanze” was enlarged into a 60 meter hill. The last competitions there were the Nazi-German youth championships in 1942.
After World War II ski jumping was completely moved to Svatý Petr, where four new wooden jumps (K16, K28, K50 and K70) were built up until 1953. Step by step in the following years the jumps were enlarged and many national and international ski jumping competitions were held.
In the 1970’s on the jump now already enlarged into a K86, Svatý Petr was hosting city of the at that time well-known “Bohemian Tournament”.
In the year of 1969 the famous Czech ski jump architect Karel Jarolímek created a new giant ski jump K170 that should be built at Svatý Petr. But the Czechoslovak ski federation decided to realize this project at Harrachov, which was completed in 1980. With this decision the time for ski jumping at and around Špindlerŭv Mlyn was run out and a long-lasting tradition ended.
