In October 1924 the newly founded WSV Windischgarsten began with the construction of the ski jumps at Gunstberg, which were planned by skiing pioneer Sepp Bildstein. Already by Christmas the 50-meter hill with wooden inrun, take-off and knoll structure and the 20-meter junior hill were completed. The inauguration was celebrated with a tri-state championship competition on February 1, 1925, which was attended by 3,000 spectators. The longest jump was landed by Peter Radacher from Mühlbach with 45.5 meters. Many competitions took place on Gunst­schanze until late 1930s.
After World War II this ski jumping facility was in a desolate condition and reconstructed in 1948. However, in order to be able to host the Austrian ski championships in 1951, in May 1949 the construction of an 80-meter hill at Garstnereck started, and therefore the whole town was working. In January 1950 the new K70 hill, also called Stüblschanze, was inaugurated with the UNION winter games and an attendence of 6,000 spectators. Outside the competition Sepp Huber jumped the hill record of 78.5 meters. One year later the Austrian Championships were succesfully hosted on the new K70 hill and on Gunstschanze (Combined jumping). Only three years later the ASKÖ championships were the last bigger competition on Garstnereck-Schanze, where Torsti Reijula set a hill record of 81 meters. After 1956 the hill started dilapidating, except for a short revival in 1963.
Today, the former ski jumping facilities of Windischgarsten are all dilapidated and hardly recognizable.
