In the early 1950's ski jumping enthusiasts of the Cooperative Sports Collective Motor Markersbach self-built their ski jumping hill at Meier-Fritz mountain. The ski jump had a natural inrun and both the take-off and knoll were made from a wooden structure. The outrun was oriented towards today's football pitch. This winter-only hill was probably used for the last time in winter 1960-61. When the construction of the hydro power station of Markersbach begun, the ski jump had to be deconstructed since it belonged to the area of the lower reservoir.
Almost 10 years later the planning of a new ski jump with a critical point of 20 m started in 1974. It was designed by Günter Freitag, an engineer from VEB BBA Aue, who was a ski jumping expert and had already planned several other ski jumps. The steel-made inrun tower was then erected according to his designs, but the earlier topological profiling of the landing hill, located near today's ski lift, had been done wrongly or not thoroughly enough, so that the hill profile became only a K15. The inaugural competition was held on November 30, 1975, and unfortunately it was already the last competition to be held on Mittweidatalschanze. Children and youngsters were only training on the plastic covered K15 and K8 ski jumps for a couple of years. In 1985 the hills were supposed to be reconstructed by the DTSB, but those works were never carried out and the hills were abandoned instead.

Schanze Raschau

Zur Schanze Raschau ist mir noch was eingefallen. Früher gab am Almhof ( Raschau Sportplatz Richtung Pumpspeicherwerk ca. 2 km) eine Schanze. Diese ist auch noch in alten Karten eingezeichnet.

Die Gebäude im Bild links sind die Skihütte und die Talstation des Liftes, die es heute noch gibt. Die alte Schanze befand sich ziemlich genau am Abzweig PSW,die Straße gab es damals noch nicht.

Schanze Raschau

Die hier genannte Schanze befand sich im Nachbarort Markersbach. Sie wurde ca. 1975 erbaut und bis 1985 gesprungen. Mitte der neunziger Jahre wurde sie abgebaut. Die Treppe fand Verwendung als Zugang zum Skilift. Bereits früher gab es in ca. 200 m Entfernung am jetzigen Abzweig Pumpspeicherwerk eine 30 m-Schanze.
