History:

At the beginning of the 20th century, the Norwegians Thorwald Heyerdal and Trygve Smith also performed ski jumping as part of ski courses in Lenzerheide. Over the years, many small ski jumps were built, such as the Furgara ski jump near the church, which was used until the 1950s, the Crapera ski jump built in 1910 near the Kurhaus, or later the large snow jump in Dieschen seura.
The Lenzerheide Ski Club, founded in 1916/17, then built a large competition hill in Val Sporz in 1930/31. The necessary funds of 12,000 francs were obtained through a lottery, among other things. Gustav Walty from Pontresina designed the ski jump and the architect Decurtins acted as site manager. A major international competition took place there for the first time in 1932. The hill was later expanded for 14,000 francs.
Until the mid-1940s, however, the condition of the Val Sporz ski jump caused increasing concern, especially the inrun and judges towers. In 1948, the modernization could be carried out. The German Sepp Weiler then won the international ski jumping competition on December 30, 1949 with a hill record of 60 meters. For some years competitions took place on December 30ths, but in 1954 the competition had to be canceled due to the lack of a new ski jumping hill manager. In 1962 the dilapidated inrun tower was finally torn down and used as fire timber. The stone-made take-off can still be seen today.
