History:

The SCL was founded in 1909. It is one of the oldest ski clubs of Switzerland and also one of the oldest clubs at Langenbruck. The first ski jumping hill at Langenbruck was 1911 built Erica­-Schanze, located behind Hotel Erica. Later the large Erzenbergschanze followed, where Sigmund Ruud set up a hill record of 69 meters in 1931. In 1940's there were two ski jumps with K-Points of 76 and 41 meters.
In 1955 with renovated Erzenbergschanze Switzerland's largest ski jump was opened. Its modern hill profile was projected as K90 by Dr. Reinhold Straumann and served as a prototype for the Olympic ski jump of 1956 in Cortina d'Ampezzo, which had almost the same measurements. It was adapted to the "fish" ski jumping style, with Andreas Däscher acting as a trial jumper on the hill as well as in the wind tunnel. He also held the hill record ofs 84 m. In 1950s, the world's ski jumping elite competed there regularily, but today the former ski jumping hill does no longer exist.
The 3 Frechelen-Schanzen were built in 1963, then in 1987 the judges tower was reconstructed and in 1997 a floodlight was added to the facility in order to promote night competitions. With these ski jumping hills Langenbruck had the only homologated ski jumping facility in whole northwest Switzerland.
After the last official competition on the large hill took place already back in 2000 with Swiss Junior Championships of Nordic Combined, the final decision to close the hill fell in December 2010. Due to a lack of young jumpers and the old-fashioned condition the jumping facility will be torn down, only the take-off will remain as a relict.

Schade

Schade, dass es keine Sprungschanzen mehr gibt in Langenbruck. Nicht zuletzt wegen den immer mehr schneearmen oder sogar schneelosen Wintern wäre die Aufhebung so oder so gekommen. Als Buben war es ein Höhepunkt des ganzen Winters, am Abend in Langenbruck die Skispringen zu verfolgen. Vor allem weil mit Hans Schmid ein Spitzenspringer aus Mümliswil das Zugpferd war, ebenso Heribert Schmid aus Langenbruck/Dulliken
