History:

In the early days of the ski guild of Bruchhausen, which became later the Ski Club inside Sauerland Mountaineering Club (SGV), the wish to have a ski jumping hill by its own came up in 1952. Then the natural hill at Hömberg in Bruchhausen was planed by architect Gladen from Winterberg. Construction works started in summer 1953 and in the following winter the natural ski jumping hill was inaugurated.
But soon people where no more satisfied with the distances that could be jumped and the enlargement plans were then approved by DSV hill supervisor Heini Klopfer. This conversion to K44 was completed by 1957, together with a new junior hill (K17) at its slope.
During good snow conditions the jumping hill was frequently used and in March 1962 a hill record of 50 meters was set up, which could never be beaten. The judges tower was renewed in 1968 and in preparation of Western German junior championships in 1971 the take-off was converted.
In 1970's district championships of Hochsauerland were held twice at Hömberg-Schanze, but with efforts being realized to concentrate the ski jumping centers of Western Germany Ski Association, ski jumping activities at Bruchhausen rapidly declined. The last competition there was held in 1978, then the ski jump ran seed, though it had been one of the best natural hills in Sauerland. Finally in 1988 the hill was put out of service and the lease of the estate was cancelled.
