History:

The roots of ski jumping at Swabian Bad Urach last back until 1912. The first large ski jumping hill was Zittelstatt-Schanze opened on 1935-03-10, on which distances of about 45 meters were jumped.
After World War II Zittelstatt-Schanze renovated in 1949-50, renamed into Hans-Greiner-Schanze in 1955 and enlarged in 1956-57. On it numerous large competitions had been hosted until 1969, with an attendance of up to 12,000 spectators.
Finally the last relicts of the former ski jump were removed in 1995, but ten years later they were excavated:

Verschönerungsverein Bad Urach uncovers ski jumping hill
Thursday, October 13, 2005
The Verschönerungsverein Bad Urach has today uncovered the former ski jumping hill in the forest. In 1969 for a last time a ski jumper ran down, since it has been covered by trees and bushes. But there won’t be any ski jumping in the future, the club just wants to keep the heritage of times, when Bad Urach was spot of thrilling ski jumping competitions – and also attracted famous sportsmen to the foot of Swabian Alp. Just as ski jumping legend Georg Thoma – he jumped a hill record of 74 meters in 1960. In the future a board shall remind of the tournaments at Bad Urach. Many of today’s helpers were former ski jumpers from Bad Urach, who used their common work to trip down memory lane. In secrete they all expect that some time somebody will be jumping on Hermann-Greiner-Schanze at Bad Urach again.

Klimawechsel kündigte sich an!

Hallo!

Diese Skisprungwettbewerbe Mitte 1960 mit internationalen Teilnehmern waren schon ein tolles Ereignis. Ich entsinne mich , dass Mitte 1960 das Springen um den 24.01. wegen Schneemangel und zu warmem Wetter auf Mitte Februar verlegt wurde, weil da bisher immer Schnee lag. Und so war es dann auch. Bei den beiden folgenden Springen wurde Schnee von der Alb angefahren und 1969 fand das Letzte statt.
Und heute erinnere ich mich, daß wir auf der Alb 1956 den
schärfsten Winter hatten mit wochenlangem Ostwind und in den Jahren drumrum viel viel Schnee.
Für mich beginnt deshalb der Klimawandel bereits seit Mitte/Ende 1960 mit Erwärmung und nachlassenden Niederschlägen.
Gruß an alle, die sich noch zurückerinnern können!
Dietrich Führer

Hallo, Skisprungfreunde, ich bin seit Kindheit Mitglied des Albvereins. 1956/57 bin ich in Glems, Bad Urach - mittl. Schanze, Pfullingen und Onstmettingen Bezirksmeisterschaften mit dreirilligen Sprungskiern gesprungen. Dabei waren Günter Nestel (Armbruch in Urach), Hans Schüle und Lothar Zluhan. Ich habe noch die Urkunden von Glems-Skizunft Metzingen. Es sind schöne Erinnerungen. Ich habe Interesse an allem, was Skisprung damals war. Also Presseberichte, Fotos usw. Danke!
