The ski club of Sohland an der Spree was founded on October 28, 1928 based on the initiative of many members of the local hiking club “Alpenveilchen”. With a rapidly growing number of members, building new sports facilities became more and more important to the club, mainly focusing on the construction of new ski jumps. Always trying to be able to jump better and longer.
Thus, the first ski jump was built at "Schreibers Berg" in 1929. It allowed jumps of around 11 meters. In 1930, the construction of a new ski jumping hill at "Schwarze Koppe" followed, which then made jumps up to 20 m possible. Already in the following year it was reconstructed with a 13 meter high inrun tower, now allowing jumps on around 30 meters.
After World War II, a provisional hill was first built at "Schreibers Berg" in 1949. Then, in 1952 the ski jump at Schwarzen Koppe was reconstructed as "Schanze der Freundschaft". At the same time, a pioneer hill was set up at "Kuhberg", which was moved to the stone mine at Thielesee in 1957. In 1959, Schanze der Freundschaft was equipped with plastic mattings for summer use and additionally a judges tower was built.
However, with the construction of the plastic covered hills at Tännicht in early 1970s, the ski jump at Schwarze Koppe was abandonned and dilapidated. In October 1999, student discovered the landing hill of former Schanze der Freundschaft at Schwarze Koppe and constructed a new ski jump with a 7 m high wooden inrun tower. On 2000-01-01, the opening of the new ski jumping hill took place. During winters it had been used from time to time, but meanwhile it also dilapidated again.
