A week before the World Cup opening, the hill in Klingenthal is ready. The German team used the opportunity to train in the Vogtland-Arena already on Saturday and was happy about the chance to jump on snow there.

"That's perfect for us. Over the past few weeks we already trained on the ice track in the inrun in Oberstdorf and Garmisch. Now we can also land on snow. A huge thanks to the VSC Klingenthal", said head coach Werner Schuster.

The jumpers were also more than satisfied with the training conditions shortly before the start of the season. "That's really great. It's fantastic to jump on snow in Germany in November. The conditions are perfect", told Marinus Kraus. And Michael Neumayer added: "What shall I say? It's old, it's a bit dirty but it's snow and you can jump on it." 

Various other teams will also start training on the hill in Klingenthal on Monday.
