History:

As early as the beginning of the 20th century, snow sports spread in Donzdorf on the Swabian Alb. From the mid-1920s there was the Waldbühlschanze and the Donzdorf ski jumpers were able to celebrate their first regional successes.
After the Second World War, the Skizunft Donzdorf was re-established in 1947 and a new 40-meter ski jump was built on Messelberg (749 m) in 1948-1949. In 1953 Messelbergschanze was rebuilt and later a 16-meter hill was also added for the younger jumpers. In the ski club, good skiers developed up to the beginning of the 1960s, who were very successful in ski jumping and Nordic combined in district and Swabian youth championships.
With the construction of the first ski lift on Messelberg in 1963, interest in alpine skiing increased significantly and ski jumping rapidly declined. The popular carnival competitions were soon discontinued and the ski jump was abandoned.
