History:

At the beginning of 1930’s the first small ski jumping hill of the Upper Franconian Schwarzen­bach was constructed on “Bergwiese” near the trail of the t-bar ski lift, but with the beginning of World War II skiing activities were disrupted.
Then even 800 spectators attended the opening competition on the new ski jumping hill at Döbraberg (795 m) on February 3, 1952. Constructor of the new facility was the famous ski jumper and architect Heini Klopfer from Oberstdorf in the Allgaeu, but especially due to the skiers and operatives Max Jahn and Georg Maier the new ski jumping hill could be set up and open new sportive perspectives for the region around Hof.
In 1958 a renewed 12 m high judge’s tower was built and changes were made to the 2.80 m high takeoff of the ski jump in order to reduce jumping distances. The relatively short outrun, which couldn’t be enlarged due to terrain conditions, had its perfidies with jumps over the K-Point and led many jumpers into difficulties. Additionally sometimes an uncomfortable western wind had a bad impact on the jumpers, too. Nevertheless manifold competitions just like cup and fellowship tournaments had been organized enthusiastically over the years, but could only be continued by the 1961 founded WSV until 1965.
Then the out-dated ski jumping hill construction had immense technical and constructive deficiencies and a reconstruction could not be afforded due to financial and sportive reasons. In 1967 the jump was demolished, the ski jumping section dis­in­te­grated and only alpine and cross-country skiers have been continuing to perform their sports at Döbraberg.
