Paul-Ausserleitner-Schanze ("Paul Ausserleitner Hill") was opened in 1941, and re-built in 2003, and is a ski jumping venue in Bischofshofen, Austria. It is one of the more important venues in the FIS Ski jumping World Cup, annually hosting the fourth and final competition of the prestigious Four Hills Tournament. It is named after Paul Ausserleitner, an Austrian ski jumper who died of the consequences of a fall on this hill in 1952.
