History:

The skiers of TSV Adelmannsfelden built the Rottalschanze near the Albverein path Adelmannsfelden – Ellwangen in autumn 1970. Engineer Vollmer from Königsbronn planned the jumping facility as the ski jumping hill advisor to the Swabian Ski Association at the time. The natural hill was built with the help of the Reck construction company and many voluntary hours of work by the club members. There was a long natural inrun, the large take-off was concreted and the critical point was 31 m. The Rottalschanze was not far from the paper mill and was inaugurated on January 6, 1971.
In 1986 the radius of the ski jump was re-profiled and the construction point was reduced to 27 m. In addition, the upper inrun was equipped with a wooden frame. The jumpers of the ski department of the TSV, which was led by the long-time director Ernst Hofmann, were dependent on the snow conditions in the winters for training and competitions. Night jumping events that were announced at short notice were always well received by the spectators. However, a planned plastic covered hill could not be realized.
The last official competition took place in 2002, with the guests from Degenfeld and Königsbronn providing all winners in the junior classes. The later Olympic champion and multiple world champion Carina Vogt from Degenfeld jumped 24 and 21 m as a 10-year-old girl! A lack of interest in ski jumping went hand in hand with the lack of winters and so in 2004 the only ski jump in the Ellwangen area was closed and the ski department was later also shut down. The Rottalschanze was finally dismantled in 2009.
