History:

In three months on construction time the members of Ski-Zunft Kornwestheim built up the first ski jumping hill in Greater Stuttgart in 1952 with the support of a nearby positioned American pioneer unit, who allocated the necessary techniques and bulldozers. High above the drill ground of the animal meal factory the 15 m high wooden inrun tower stood with two inrun gates for different inrun lengths. The landing hill, on which distances of up to 30 meters were expected, dragged over 60 meters long into the flatter area.
On January 12, 1953 the inauguration was celebrated by an attendance of 4,000 spectators with a one and a half hours long lasting competition, in which 35 jumpers had 3 turns. Some weeks after the opening competition floodlights were installed for night competitions and practising. In the following years many day and night events were hosted at Kornwestheim, but in end 1950’s the end of ski jumping in the “flatlands of Stuttgart” had come.
By the way, it is worth mentioning that even one talented local ski jumper managed to get announced for the German national team. Franz Baier, one of the most engaged combatants for the ski jump construction at Kornwestheim, participated nationally and internationally and reached respectable results. He even was nominated for the WSC at Falun in 1954, but could not start, because his entrance visa has handed in too late.

Schade dass man von der Skisprungschanze gar nichts mehr sieht.Bin schon oft mit dem Fahrrad dran vorbeigefahren, weiss ungefähr wo sie sich befand, aber durch die nachgewachsenen Bäume und Pflanzen ist es schwer, sich zu orientieren. Dazu die belebte Straße, dass man sich gar nicht mehr vorstellen kann, wo die Springer damals gelandet sind
