History:

The Säntisschanze at foot of Iltois and Chäserrugg in Toggenburg was built in 1928 and first admitted distances up to 56 m. The very first international competition was hosted in 1936 with Birger Ruud and local hero Fritz Kainersdorfer participating.
On 1951-01-28 the Säntisschanze was reopened at a kind of Swiss four hills tournament or jumpers week. The opening competition always took place at Unterwasser, then tournaments at St. Moritz, Arosa and Le Locle, later also Gstaad and Engelberg, followed. Already in 1953 the old ski jumping hills was torn down and instead a new take-off made of concrete and iron was build. On the converted facility Thorbjörn Falkanger from Norway realized a first hill record of 61.5 m. The longest jump so far was performed by Birger Ruud in 1936 with a distance of 56 m. This hill record was equalized by Alfred Kleger and Niklaus Stump at competitions in 1940’s.
In 1963 the judges tower was build and the ski jumping hill was adapted according to latest FIS requirements. At the opening competition of VIII International Jumpers Week of SSV on January 24, 1965, Italies Giacomo Aimoni jumped a new hill record of 62 m. The last international competition in 1969 was watched by 6,000 spectators and was won by Bjørn Wirkola with a new hill record, Jiri Raska and Takashi Fujisawa took also part.
The Hometown and residence of quadruple Olympic Gold Medal winner Simon Ammann is in Eastern Switzerland, the jumps of Urnäsch and Wildhaus are close.
