History:

TSV Crailsheim started building its ski jump in Eichwald on July 1st, 1950. The construction manager was the surveying engineer Hans Pauschinger. Club members and other volunteers put in 3450 hours of planning, earthworks, concrete and carpentry work. Companies from Crailsheim donated material and wage costs in the amount of DM 2010. On December 16, 1951, the approximately 7 m high wooden structure of the inrun tower was finally completed. The ski jump with a critical point of 25 m was soon approved by representatives of the Ostalb district in the Swabian Ski Association and found to be good.
On January 20, 1952, over 1000 spectators came to the opening competition. Julius Habermeier, the then head of the ski department of TSV Crailsheim, did the first jump. Due to the short inrun length, the jumping distances in the opening competition were disappointing - Walter Erben was the furthest with 16.5 meters. Just a week later, the youth championships of the Ostalb district took place on the Eichwaldschanze. Walter Erben won in the "General Class", but the longest jump was made by an SV Unterkochen athlete with 23.5 m. In 1953, Berthold Kieninger set a hill record of 24.5 m.
Eichwaldschanze provided adventure and fun in several cold, snowy winters. The carnival competitions were particularly popular with spectators. The hill, made of coniferous wood, fell apart over time and warmer winters made repairs not worthwhile. The aisle cut into the forest has long been overgrown and so only a few concrete pillars in the forest herald Crailsheim's heyday as a ski jumping location.
