For the construction of the “Schanze im Lattengründl” 11 sportsmen built in about 500 hours of work a 7 m high and 16 m long inrun tower and transported into the “Lattengründl". On 1930-12-14 the time had come to celebrate the opening ceremony and from then on the ski jump was a point of attraction every Sunday for hundreds of sport fans of Schmiedeberg. First hill record holder was Willy Ranisch with 24.5 m, the last official competition on the ski jumping hill took place on 1933-01-29.
The first jumping competition after World War II was in 1949 on a snow jumping hill at the “Naundorfer Flur”.
After that the ski jump in the Hochofen was built, but after some trouble with the controlling committee the work that was already done in the outrun of the jump was destroyed by a flood on July 7 and 8 in 1954.
On 1958-03-09 time had come to open the second ski jumping hill at Schmiedeberg after 1404 hours of hard work. Gerhard Steiningen from Hennersdorf who practised at Schmiedeberg set up the first hill record with 31.5 m.
From July 1974 on the jump was converted and second smaller ski jump was built, which had been one of the most modern small hills in the GDR after the opening ceremony on 1977-10-08 and had guaranteed perfect practising conditions for the jumpers of the area.
Today the jumps are unfortunately no longer existing.
