Krucza Skała ski jump

Local name: Skocznia narciarska na Kruczej Skale

The hill is officially named Krucza Skała in Lubawka. It is one of the four normal hills existing in Poland (it has a construction point on the 85th meter). It obtained its current shape during the modernization carried out in 2016. The facility was opened by Wojciech Fortuna - one of the most famous Polish jumpers, Olympic champion and world champion from Saporo.

The hill was founded in 1924 on the initiative of the members of the ski club in Ullersdorf (after 1945 Ulanowice, currently the Lubawka district). Construction began with blasting the rocks - the aggregate obtained was used to build a road from Lubawka to Chełmsko Śląski. The object was named Giler after the name of its designer. The hill was used as a preparatory object for the German ski jumpers team before the famous games in Garmisch-Partenkirchen in 1936.

After World War II, the legendary Polish jumper Stanisław Marusarz became interested in the hill. His show flights led to the popularization of the facility in Lubawka and its expansion. Organized here, among others The Polish Youth Olympics in winter sports, and among the famous jumpers using the facility was the two-time Olympic champion Kamil Stoch.
