History:

The first ski jumping tournament at Gstaad in Saanenland was already held in 1910.
In 1916 the ski jumping hill in Matten at Eggli was constructed. Several conversions of the ski jumping hill followed in the years 1932, 1959 and 1966. After a final conversion in 1972 the ski jump had a K-Point of 88 meters. From 1946 to 1966 an annual competition for the so called Montgomery Cup was organized, named after Field Marshal Bernard Montgomery who liked to spend his holidays in Saanenland. From 1967 onwards the Swiss ski jumper’s tournament was hosted on the Mattenschanze and from 1980 to 1990 a total of 7 competitions were part of the FIS World Cup. The last competition was held in 1992 and since the facilities had been dilapidating and no more ski jumping activities were possible on the large hills as well as on K40.
In 2000 efforts were made to enforce a reconstruction of new K20, K50 and K70 jumps, but these were given up soon and instead the last rests of the ski jumps were finally removed in spring 2008.
Further historical ski jumping hills existed at Felixis Rain, Gottardis Rain, Bieris Rain, at Riedhubel, in the Litzi and in Chällen.
