History:

In Sosa, a small town in Erz Mountains, there was Fortunaschanze constructed at Sosa creek already in 1929. Since there were no competitions hosted in the time of National Socialism, it had to be completely rebuilt after the war in early 1950’s. A new inrun and judges tower was set up, the landing hill was enlarged for larger distances – and then the hill was renamed into Fritz-Ruscher-Schanze. Ski jumping competitions on county and districtal levels, as well as comparisons between both training centres at Oberwiesenthal and Klingenthal took place until 1968. Then the old-fashioned ski jumping hill had to be removed due to increasing safety-related lackings.
For the youth jumpers of BSG Wismut Sosa already in 1963 in the valley of Stinkenbach the Pionierschanze was constructed. This small natural ski jump was re-profiled from 1972 to 1974 and covered with plastic mattings. Additionally a small inrun tower was set up. Then some children’s and youth Spartakiads of the district of Aue were hosted. In end 1980’s also this ski jumping hill was shut down, because winter sports section broke up.
