There have been ski jumping activities at St. Moritz already since 1895, among others on 1905 constructed Julierschanze.
The 1926 completely new-built Olympiaschanze was constructed at another place, in the suburb St. Moritz Bad. The old Julierschanze at the beginning of the village rested until the end of 1950’s and was used for practising and entertainment of visitors and tourists. Still today the very last bits of the hill are recognisable.
The opening of 70 meter Olympiaschanze, which was constructed by hill architect Robert Staumann, was on 1927-01-20 and one year later it hosted of the Olympic ski jumping competition which was won the Norwegian Alf Andersen.
In 1948 the Olympic Winter Games took place a second time and again a Norwegian was the winner – Petter Hugstedt. In 1963 the hill record was at 73.5 m, held by Harry Glaß (GER). Over the years the jumping hill has enlarged step by step and today the K-Point is at 90 metres. Snow falls on the jump very early, because of the altitude and consequently it is used by many ski jumping nations for the practising before the season starts. Since many years there has been the traditional Christmas competition on December 26th which is also part of the Continental Cup challenge.
In November 2002 an anniversary competition was made and at the same time the 100 years of the SC Alpina were celebrated. The ski jumping facility also includes the K61-Falcun-Schanze, the K38-Speret-Schanze and the K15-Kinderschanze.
In 2006 serious doubts about the future of Olympiaschanze came up, because it had become very dilapidated. Consequently the 95th traditional Christmas competition in 2006 was cancelled and the ski jump was closed.
After meanwhile thoughts about an enlargement into an 140 meter hill the plans where now changed back to an 120 meter hill for round-about 7.4m Swiss Francs. These still have to to approved by the community council and inhabitants of St. Moritz in late 2010 / early 2011.
