History:

In middle 1950’s enthusiastic winter sportsmen from Geltow in the nearby Caputh founded the section skiing of SG Geltow in order to join together and perform their passion sports.
In both towns, which are by the way situated right in front of Potsdam, resettled Sudeten German people from the Riesen­gebirge. They had the crazy idea to built up a ski jumping hill, which was made true in 1958. The ski jump was situated at the western slope of Schäfereiberg and had a 11 m high wooden inrun tower. The total height difference was 45 m. The yearly held competitions in the following winters gained a lot of attention in the area, because the largest part of the numerous spectators never had seen a ski jumping competition live before. Last record holder on this 30 meter hill was Karl Lorenz from Kleinmachnow with 29.0 meters.
Unfortunately the last competition took place in 1970, after that the jump could no longer kept running due to financial reasons and the bad winters also joined their part.
