History:

In the center of the Vogtlandkreis lies the small town of Werda, where in January 1953 the ski jumping hill in the Görnitzbachtal, built by the committed sportsmen of the town, was inaugurated. The longest jumps were around 25 m. Under the difficult conditions of the 1950s, the sports community also did cross-country skiing, Nordic combined, and alpine disciplines in addition to ski jumping. Local and school championships were followed by various ski competitions such as district championships and Spartakiades for schoolchildren and pioneers with participants from all over the Vogtland.
Like the "old" hill, the new, larger Friedrich-Ludwig-Jahn-Schanze was tackled in 1966/67 under difficult conditions. As part of the NAW movement, many helpers came to the ski jump to complete the construction with wooden inrun scaffolding and a stone take-off. For the conditions at the time, the ski jumping complex with three hills K40, K25 and K15 was a good basis for training and competition. The inauguration took place in 1968 as the highlight of the III. district children's and youth spartakiade in Werda, in which approx. 350 teenagers and children took part.
Over the years, however, the interest in jumping declined. Presumably, the modernization of the largest ski jump was not completed in 1972.
