Shortly after it was founded in December 1903, the Engelberg Ski Club set up its first ski jumping hill at the so-called "Bänzenrüti", not far from today's Gross-Titlis-Schanze. The "Great Ski Races of Switzerland" in Engelberg in 1908 and 1916 were held on the Sandrain-Schanze, which was located at the entrance to the village. For the 19th Swiss Ski Race in 1925, the first Titlis-Schanze at Rohr was built, which immediately allowed jumps of 55 meters.
Unfortunately, a ski jumping competition on Titlis-Schanze is said to have claimed one dead, which is why it was soon reconstructed. The 24th ski race took place there in 1930 and international competitions were also held in Engelberg. In 1936 Birger Ruud won and in 1938 the Czech Jaroslav Lukeš achieved victory with a hill record of 63 m. Presumably, the ski jump had been used until mid-1950s.
Finally in 1964 Kleintitlisschanze-K62 with floodlights was constructed and only short time later additional Bubenschanze-K36. After the news came up that Unterwasser would no longer be part of traditional Swiss Ski Jumpers Tournament, the planning for Grosstitlisschanze at Engelberg started. 300,000 SFr were financed by Ski-Club Engelberg and in 1971 Großtitlisschanze was inaugurated with a competition of Ski Jumpers Tournament. With his second jump on 102 meters Sepp Zehnder wrote skiing history, because he landed the first one hundred-meter-leap in Switzerland.
Ten years later the hill was already out-fashioned and a 350,000 Franks expensive renovation became necessary. At first the public financing of the project failed, but finally people managed to get all the advances together. On February 26, 1984 Gross-Titlis-Schanze could be reopened as planned with the very first Team World Championships competition.
Since 1980 Engelberg has been steady station of Ski Jumping World Cup and this status was secured with the last conversion of Gross-Titlis-Schanze into K125 from August 2000 to fall 2001 and the renewing of the inrun in 2006.
Meanwhile the Kleintitlisschanzen are no more in use, instead the group of young ski jumpers of Nordic Engelberg from Engelberg valley are practising on small snow jump.
In 2013 planning of a modernization of Gross-Titlis-Schanze had started, which was finally carried out in 2016. For 2.7 million Euros the take-off was moved 4 meters back and 2 meters higher, the inrun replaced by a concrete structure, and the hill profile of the landing hill adapted, thus increasing the hill size to 140 meters. Furthermore, the ski jumping facility was equipped with TV-ready floodlights and a novel LED illumination of the inrun track.

I just need to say that live tv coverage from Engelberg are by far the worst every season of the WC..Who likes to watch the jumpers from far behind? It takes away all the excitement since all jumps look about the same...Really, really bad camera position guys!!

Pettersen 2003

Nie, żebym się czepiał, ale skok z serii próbnej na 138 metrów Pettersena (jeszcze przed tym z konkursu) można chyba uznać za nieoficjalny stary rekord ;p
