The „Winterloch“ has been a well-known place in the Spessart area and even up to the Frankfurt area for decades. Before and especially after World War II, hundreds of skiers went to Heigenbrücken by train, walked with their skis into the Winterloch and practised skiing there (without any lift).
At that beginning of 1950s, the SSKC Aschaffenburg built the “Adalbert-Clausius-Sprungschanze”, which was opened on 1954-02-25 with an attendence of 5,000 spectators. Ski jumpers like Sepp Grill (Bad Mitterndorf/Salzburger Land), Beppo Landenhammer (winner of the opening competition, Reit im Winkl), but also Norbert Purmann (WSV Aschaffenburg) showed their skills to often more than 3000 spectators in a time without television. The hill record of Sepp Grill was at 38 m. The last competition took place in 1968, after that the ski jumping hill was dismantled.
