History:

The ski jump at Saint Martin Mountain was built in the 50's. The official opening of the typically wooden hill with concrete landing elements took place in 1953. The facility was built with municipal funds. The initiator of the construction of the ski jump was Messrs. Dagnan and Zdzisław Karpiński - a local educator, instructor of the Polish Scouting Association, activist of the Polish Tourist and Sightseeing Society. The hill record, never to be beaten, was broken on the opening day. It was 26 meters and belonged to one of the jumpers from Zakopane. The hill builder himself, Mr. Karpiński, achieved 19 meters here. Edward Rusnarczyk - director of the Tarnów Sports and Recreation Center and Eng. Andrzej Chęciński - teacher of the local chemical technical school, Tarnovia's goalkeeper and its later activist. There was also a small lift at the ski jump.
The jump was very popular among the inhabitants, especially in the 1950s and 1960s, when they came to watch the daredevils and also try their hand at the small hill. The inhabitants of Tarnów made amateur ski jumps with movable hooks. Sports competitions were organized on a regular basis.
The end of the ski jumping hill activity in the 80's. Jumping on Martin's Mountain unfortunately ended after a tragic accident, when one of the men jumped from the hill on a sled and crashed into it. After this incident it was decided to dismantle the hill. Today it is hard to find its remains, but a characteristic tree grows here, also visible in the old photos.
At the beginning of the 21st century, in 2002, with the growing interest in ski jumping in Poland, the idea of ​​rebuilding the hill appeared, but in the end nothing was done on this topic, among others due to difficult snow conditions.
