Already in 1911 the fist ski jumping hill at Neustadt in Black Forest (since 1971 Titisee-Neustadt) was built at Mühlrain. From 1930 to 1932 the first Hochfirstschanze in Schmiedsbachtal was constructed as a 60 meter hill. It was inaugurated on December 31, 1933 in front of an attendance of 3,000 spectators. During the German and Armed Forces (Wehrmacht) Championships in February 1938 even 10,000 spectators came to the hill.
After World War II, SC Neustadt developed the idea to build a new large hill together with the ski jumpers trio from Oberstdorf, Toni Brutscher, Sepp Weiler and Heini Klopfer. The natural K80 hill was planned by Heini Klopfer and constructed next to the old hill from August to December 1949. Despite mild temperatures and rain, Hochfirstschanze could be inaugurated on 1950-01-15, where 15,000 spectators saw jumps on up to 95 meters. Besides German Nordic Championships in 1951, 1955 and 1960, Kongsberg Cup in February 1963 was a huge highlight, where 15,000 spectators saw a duel between winner Georg Thoma and Max Bolkart. The old Hochfirst 60 meter hill had been covered with plastic mattings as one of the first ski jumps in West-Germany in 1957. However, the mattings were already removed during 1960's and the hill was later given up.
The take-off area of the large hill was modified in 1971 and the hill was extended with a K-Point of 90 m, later 101 m. Furthermore, a bend in the inrun was straightened in 1971. In 1976, German Nationals were again held in Titisee-Neustadt and since 1978 competitions of Schwarzwälder Springertournee were held there, which later became part of Europa-Cup and Continental-Cup. A profound conversion of the landing hill and modifications to the take-off were carried out in 1987-88, enlarging the critical point to 113 m.
Next to the former 60-meter-hill, the Fritz-Heitzmann-K40 junior hill was reconstructed and covered with plastic mattings in 1993. It was converted and modernized again in 2003, when new guide rails on the landing hill and an automatic wetting facility were installed.
In 2000, almost 4 million Euros were invested in order to modernize Hochfirstschanze as a World Cup-ready K120 ski jump. After a Continentalcup competition for the inauguration on February 10 and 11, 2001, the first Ski Jumping World Cup event in Black Forest was hosted in December 2001. In 2003-2004, the hill profile was slightly changed from K120 to K125 (HS 142). Hochfirstschanze has since been regular host of Ski Jumping World Cup and Continental Cup competitions, although the organizers often have to fight lack of snow and difficult weather conditions.

Neustadt muss kämpfen. Es ist zwar genug Schnee da, aber der Dauerregen und die warmen Temparaturen machen es schwer die Schanze zu präparieren. Bin aber überzeugt ,dass sie es schaffen.

Bin am Samstag selber zu Gast. und hoffe auf einen schönen Wettkampf

Fehler ?!

Ist in diesem Link, der die Stationen für den 2013/2014 beschreibt, ein Fehler, da da HS 140 bei Neustadt steht.
