The first ski jumping hill at Rudzka Góra (230 m above sea level) functioned before World War II - then within the limits of Ruda Pabianicka (the town was included in the borders of Łódź in 1946), and a press release about it appeared already in 1927.
The first suggestions regarding the construction of a new ski jump appeared at the turn of the 1950s and 1960s. A great supporter of the construction of such a facility was a journalist from "Dziennik Łódzki", Jarosław Nieciecki. In 1969, on the basis of the design of engineer Edmund Boroński, the construction of the hill with the K-point located at 15 meters was started. 18 meters were considered the maximum safe distance. The ski jump was to be part of a larger recreational center for the inhabitants of Łódź (then 750,000).
The facility was licensed by the Polish Ski Association (PZN) on December 15, 1969. Further works were also planned: by 1975, a lift and plastic covering had to be created. These investments, however, never came to fruition. The hill, although used for a few years, had structural defects, and its biggest shortcoming was too short outrun, limited by the fence.
For over 30 years, the hill fell into disrepair until 2009, when young people from the vicinity of Łódź brought the facility to its usable state. The group, which adopted the name Łódź Ski Team, also prepared a smaller ski jump (K5 named "Jabłonka" = "Little Appletree"), and in 2010 organized the Central Poland amateur championship on Rudzka Góra. It was probably the first ski jumping competition in the post-war history of the city. The event was repeated in 2013, and in 2016 the Łódź championship was organized there.
Several jumpers of Łódź Ski Team, who started their adventure with ski jumping on Rudzka Góra, received a license from the Polish Ski Association. In April 2016 they even competed for the Łódź summer championship at the facility in Wisła-Centrum, and the prizes were given to them by the president of PZN, Apoloniusz Tajner.
