History:

Hans-Heinz-Schanze in Johanngeorgenstadt was the first large hill in Germany and named after the initiator of ski jumping at Johanngeorgenstadt, who died during World War I. His brother Guido, a local furniture manufacturer, financed and constructed this jump in the years 1928/29. The first hill record was set up by Walter Glaß from Klingenthal with 68 meters in 1929. One year later, later Olympic Gold Medal winner Birger Ruud of Norway reached 70 meters! The hill record was finally at 80 m, held by the local ski jumping hero Herbert Queck. At these times it was the biggest ski jump of whole Germany with a 42 m high inrun tower and 110 m inrun length, but in 1956 the dilapidated wooden inrun construction collapsed.
At the same location in Lehmergrund the new Erzgebirgsschanze K75 was constructed from 1960 to ’62. By the way, the massive building made of ferroconcrete was co-financed by the earnings of the national lottery and sweepstakes organization of the GDR. In mid 1960’s the smaller junior hills were set up and in 1978 the K36 was equipped with an adjustable inrun tower (Freitag tower). These youth hill are still running today and were modernized and covered with plastic mattings in 1993/94. In 2005 all four smaller jumps were equipped with porcelain inrun trails and new mattings.
The large Erzgebirgsschanze hasn’t been used for ski jumping for some years now, because it doesn’t fit modern security and profile regulations. Meanwhile, even the deconstruction of timehonoured large Erzegebirgsschanze has started. Nevertheless, WSV Johanngeorgenstadt is still actively developing the nordic skiing youth, so that talents such as world class jumpers and Nordic combined like Sven Hannawald and Björn Kircheisen might again emerge from the local ski club.
