History:

With the foundation of the skiing division of Turnerbund Weiden in 1931 the plan was made to construct a ski jumping hill at Kutscherberg (809 m) in Altglashütte. The snow-safe in Upper-Palatinate Forest near the Czech border was used by the civil sports club and its skiers. Next to the ski area the Restauration "Gasthof und Pension Blei", which has been running as a family business since 1909, was strongly connected to club life in these days since now own skiing hut existed and it served as a guesthouse for winter sportsmen and vacationists from Weiden.
It is said that the inaugural jump on the new hill was made by Dr Rudolf Glötzner. He was a universal sportsman at TB Weiden in these days, who succeed as a decathlete in athletics and especially in pole vault, by setting up national records and gathering international honours for Germany.
The Saarsprungschanze only existed until 1946. In the cold winters after World War II it was used as firewood and dismantled piece by piece.
