History:

At Etzelwang, situated on the eastern foothills of Franconian Switzerland, but already belonging to Upper Palatinate, the very first ski jumping hill already existed in 1935.
In 1950 the DAV Noris Nürnberg was mainly responsible for the construction of a 30 m natural ski jumping hill at Brennberg, because Etzelwang became the winter sports destination of the Nuremberg based club due to the good railway connections. When the influx from Nuremberg decreased in 1960's, the DAV Noris Etzelwang was founded and competed with its ski jumpers in numerous competitions on Upper and Lower Franconian ski jumping hills. At Etzelwang the cup tournaments of "SRZ", the Noris Shield Cup, but also Nordic ski games of ski district Franconian Jura were organized.
When the German Nordic junior championships were awarded to Hirschau in 1972, the ski jumping hills there were considered too small and by the support of SC Monte Kaolino Hirschau and the AKW Hirschau company the new Norisschanze at Etzelwang was build.In 1973 the jump was inaugurated with the national team participating on its way back from Czechia. But the highlight was the "Berauer-Cup" in 1979 with international participants from eight countries! This tournament of alpine countries of junior Nordic combined was succesfully organized with ski jumping events at Etzelwang and cross-country at Hirschau.
Regional competitons followed aswell, but bad snow conditions in the following years and a lack of young athletes lead to the end of Norisschanze. The last official competition was held in February 1986, until 1995 it was used by local youngsters.
