History:

Skiclub Andermatt was founded on December 13, 1903 and in 1905 the first official competition was hosted, which meant at that time a longer run by foot, ski jumping and an alpine skiing round. In 1909 the "5th big ski race of Switzerland", the Swiss Championships in these days, were staged at Andermatt.
On the 1931 opened Gott­hard­schanze annual ski jumping competitions took place de­pen­ding on the winter conditions and, of course, also Swiss Championships in ski jumping and Nordic combination. In 1934 the Norwegian World Class jumper Birger Ruud landed a hill record of 66 m, which had only been beaten by Jan Armnes (Norway) and the Switzerland’s Andreas Däscher with leaps on 69 m in 1952. In 1934 und 1953 Swiss Championships were staged on Gotthardschanze. When the Russian ski jumping national team was preparing and having qualifying competitions short before the Olympics of 1956, a few times more than 70 m were reached.
Parts of the jump and the judges tower were destroyed by avalanches in 1945, 1951 and 1952, but always reconstructed. But wind at the jump was always were prob­le­ma­tic. The first official competitions was held in 1966 as a Swiss Cham­pion­ship. In 1970 the last hour came near for the Gotthardschanze. The takeoff was removed and since only the landing hill has stayed as a witness of the former ski jumping hill of Andermatt.
The last ski jumping competition on the 1964 built Gurschenschanze (K40) took place in 1990. After that the area was opened for alpine downhill skiing.
