History:

The first ski jumping competition at Arosa was already held in 1904 at Obersee. The first permanent hill was then Tomelischanze at Obersee, on which jumps of about 30 meters were made between 1910 and 1915. From 1915 to 1930, Bärenbadschanze at the Schafrügg in the area of Hinterwald was used. It allowed jumps up to 56 meters, but was destroyed by an avalanche and a storm in 1930.
This was the hour of birth of the Plessurschanze at Müliboden at Hinterwald, situated south of the village. There, Swiss championships took place, too, but this was only in 1943. Ch. Blum from Arosa jumped a new hill record of 60 m in 1946 and five years later Finland’s Pietikainen jumped on 69 m. In the 1950s, Arosa was part of the Swiss four hills tournament together with St. Moritz, Unterwasser and Le Locle. Worth mentioning is the competition in 1956, which is said to have taken place at temperatures of minus 24°C.
In 1965, Plessurschanze was renewed and two more small ski jumping hills were built up. Unfortunately, in 1967 the ski jumping week at Arosa had to be canceled due to weather caprioles, which led the landing hill to slide down. The financial efforts of a reconstruction could not be managed at that time and as consequence, ski jumping activities at Arosa ended.
