The first ski jumping hill on 1024 m high Ochsenkopf at Bischofsgrün in 1933 already had a wooden inrun tower (K35) and was a very famous meeting point of ski jumpers in snow-secure Fichtelgebirge until 1950’s. Numerous competitions were held on it and the best ski jumpers from east and west went over the bakken. With sportive contacts to Oberhof it was possible to learn about the new plastic covered hill there in 1956 and then the ski club made efforts to have a summer ski jumping surface also at Bischofsgrün. Supported by the company Braun & Wettberg from Black Forest it was possible to open the first plastic covered ski jumping hill (K54) of the western world (!) in front of 20,000 spectators in 1957. After that Bischofsgrün was the first address for successful summer ski jumping events.
Then in 1975 the conversion into a K60 was made and two years later the K20 hill followed.
In mid 1990’s it became necessary to modernize the hill totally in order to fulfill newest ski jumping regulations and jumping styles. In 2000 the inrun tower was removed and the works on the hill profile started. In 2002 the new inrun was completed, but in May 2003 the re-construction was faced to a strong set-back when the landing hill slid of over night. The consequence was a long-lasting court dispute, until the construction works continued in 2006, lead by a new planning team.
In the scope of a Ladies COC in summer 2007 the inauguration of the new plastic covered HS 71 jump was celebrated. Based on the concept of establishing a state-wide training center for nordic skiing in Fichtel mountains with increasing hill sizes, two more ski jumping hills were built at Ochsenkopf-Schanzenarena: the K20 hill already existing in the old facility was replaced by a K15 hill for children (opened in 2009) and another K30 junior hill (inauguration 2015).
An interesting technical feature of the new K30 junior hill is the fact that both inrun and landing hill were constructed with parabolic transistion profiles - in contrast to so far typically used circular arches.
