Zellerfelder Talschanze was the first steady ski jump in the whole Harz region. It was built in 1906, the inauguration took place in 1907 in course of the local winterfest. It was a very popular place for ski jumping until World War I begin. There were literally no ski jumping activity between 1914 and 1920.
Finally, in 1923, the Schneesportverein Clausthal-Zellerfeld, Ortsgruppe des Oberharzer Ski-Klubs (OHSK), rebuilt the ski jump on its own, so competitions could be held from 1924 on. But again, the activities were interrupted by war.
It took until 1949, until it started again. That was the year when the ski jump was reactivated and even enlarged. On December 25th of 1949, it was opened and renamed as Mönchstalschanze. There was even a railroad station at the old Innerstetal route, which brought spectators and even athletes to the ski jump. Unfortunately, the history of this ski jump did not last too long as well.
In 1957, the national youth championships were held on Mönchstalschanze. In the early 1960's, it was eventually closed, probably also because Hans Steinhäuser from Altenau suffered deadly injuries at a crash.
