History:

Being disappointed about German winter sportsmen not being allowed to participate in Olympic Winter Games 1948 at St. Moritz, the three ski jumpers from Oberstdorf Sepp Weiler, Heini Klopfer and Toni Brutscher made the idea to build an own giant ski jump. In 1949 all decisions were made and the construction of the new ski flying hill at Stillachtal planned by Heini Klopfer and Willi Huber could start. In only five months the giant wooden inrun construct was set up and on February 2, 1950 the jumpers from Oberstdorf made first tests on the new facility. Four weeks later the first ski flying week with 100,000 spectators and new world records by Gantschnigg, Weiler and Netzell was hosted.
For the Ski Flying WSC in 1973 the old wooden jump had to be dismantled due to safety reasons. It was replaced by a new instep lightweight concrete facility. Heini Klopfer couldn’t experience all this, he already died with 50 years in 1968. In order to merit him, who has ski jumping hill expert for the International Ski Association (FIS) and made plans for around 250 jumps worldwide, the new jump at Stillachtal was named “Heini-Klopfer-Skiflugschanze”.
Again and again the outrun was dug deeper and the hill profile adapted, so after the last conversion for WSC 1998 distances of more than 220 m are now possible. For Ski Flying WSC 2008 a 1.1m € expensive floodlight facility was installed, inrun was adapted to the latest security regulations and the warming-up room for ski jumpers enlarged, too.
Today the jump is said to be the nicest and safest ski flying hill on the world. Wind isn’t really a problem on this hill, because of the forest surrounding it. With the lift also tourists can climb up to the inrun tower when there are no competitions and another lift leads up to a frightening hight with a panorama view.
Prior to the Ski Flying World Championships in 2018, Heini-Klopfer-Schanze had to be re-constructed and modernized in 2016-2017. For about 11.6 million Euros the take-off was shifted 7 meters back and 5 meters up on the exisiting, unique inrun structure, resulting in a lower flight curve and enlargement of the hill into K200 and HS 225. Additionally, a number of improvements of the general infrastructure were carried out: judges and coaches towers, a slanting elevator and the atheletes' village were completly rebuild.

Yes, it will be rebuilt, but probably not enlarged. More at: http://www.all-in.de/nachrichten/allgaeuwirtschaft/Oberstdorfer-Skiflugschanze-muss-fuer-11-6-Millionen-Euro-modernisiert-werden;art8119,1867516

Skocznia w filmie "Genialny klan"

W filmie "Genialny klan" Wesa Andersona z 2001 roku w przedziale czasowym 18:26 - 18:50 mamy relację z zawodów na mamuciej skoczni w Oberstdorfie (w telewizorze, który z wanny ogląda Gwyneth Paltrow. Na pewno bardzo ciekawa sprawa. Może jakiś fanatyk odgadnie co to za zawody i kto skacze. Poniżej wrzucam print screena:

1961 am Schanzenturm

Im Jahre 1961 habe ich als Wehrpflichtiger des Fernmeldelehr - Bttl. Starnberg die Fernmeldeverbindungen zwischen Schanze, Kampfrichterturm und Auslauf aufgebaut und betreut. Es waren Drahtleitungen und Feldtelefone. Ich saß in Uniform ganz oben am Turm am Telefon und habe alle Springer kennengelernt. Die Springer trugen damals ihre Ski selbst und kamen ganz unten vom Auslauf. Am Kampfrichterturm hing nach einem Sprung die Tafel 148 m.
