History:

The natural ski jumping hill at Bärenstein-Weipert, which was constructed by the local engineer Josef Pötzl, was inaugurated on February 25, 1923 after two years of constructing time. The jump was embedded in an artificially made wooden slope at the eastern side of Bärenstein (897 m) and consequently very protected from dangerous winds. Another nice feature was, that snow was still lying there at starting smelt weather and since competition where still held until early days of spring. At that time the jump was known as the steepest one in whole Saxony, but nevertheless it was very popular with ski jumpers. Until 1939 Bärenstein regularly hosted the Silver Cup of Willi-Schanze, where from time to time also members of the German national team started and in early 1930’s even Norway’s Birger Ruud was jumping.
After 1945 ski jumping was slowly coming back to life and there were well-frequented local competitions. The last tournament was held in 1959, afterwards the ski jumping hill dilapidated and the hill was used for alpine skiing. Today there is a ski lift on it.
