The St. Georg ski jump is located in the Winterberg ski lift carousel at Herrloh. The Winterberg Ski Club trains promising young talents there. The St. Georg hill has already hosted German Championships and the Nordic Combined Summer Grand Prix. Its K-point is located at 80 meters. The hill record has been held since 2000 by Manuel Fettner (Austria) with 89.5 meters.
The hill was built in 1959 and rebuilt to a mat hill in 2000. In 2007, it received a new ice track and snow nets, so that the summer hill became a year-round hill again. This closed an important training gap for athletes from the Winterberg/Willingen region at the federal base of the German Ski Association (DSV).
