History:

At Niedersfeld in Rothaat mountains, today part of Winterberg municipality, the first natural ski jumping hill at the foot of 764.5 m high Rimberg was built in 1924. Rimbergschanze was converted a few times, at last in 1959 by Heini Klopfer with a K-Point of 53 m. In 1962 and 1968 the Westgerman Nordic Ski Championships were held there. However, during the combined jumping event in 1968 a tragic accident happened, as distance judge Friedbert Schleimer was fatally hit by an adrift ski. As a consequence, the ski jump was then abandoned.
In 1950, Rosenthalschanze was built as an additional training and junior hill. Also this 30-meter hill was been out of use since 1970. To date, the remainings of both ski jumping hills are hardly visible anymore. In the former outrun of Rimbergschanze the Hillestausee reservoir was flooded in 1979.
