The Felix Gottwald Ski Jump Stadium is located in the village of Uttenhofen in the borough of Saalfelden in the Austrian state of Salzburg. It has four jumps of categories K 15, K 30, K 60 and K 85.
On the Biberg hill in Uttenhofen there were 2 jumps built in the 1970s. In Saalfelden itself, between 1950 and 1980, there were the Ritzensee Ski Jump and the Drei Tannen Ski Jump, both operated by the local ski club, SK Saalfelden, and the Army Sports Club. The Biberg Ski Jump was added in 1986. In 2004 the K 45 jump was upgraded into a K 60 and the two smaller jumps were fitted with matting for summer ski jumping. The new K 60 was finally opened on 10 October 2004 and the ski jumping centre was renamed as the Felix Gottwald Ski Jumping Stadium in honour of the Nordic combination skier, Felix Gottwald, who was a member of the Saalfelden Ski Club. In addition, the Nordic Junior World Championships were held here in 1988 and 1999.
