Originally the first smaller ski jumping hill at Feldberg was constructed already in 1928 for the German championships. The planning and construction of the “long distance jump” at Fahler Lochin the period between 1935 and 1937 was means, which was influenced by the sports government of the Third Reich in National Socialism. The importance and valuation of the Black Forest as the cradle of German ski jumping was propagandized sport-politically and also the target to host Olympic Winter Games in Black Forest was playing a major role.
For that time the construction of this new ski stadium with the union of three ski jumping hills K70, K50 and K15 was a big innovation, especially because the facility on 1300 m above sea level was very snow-secure. With the opening of the ski jump the traditional international Easter competition was transferred from the dilapidated Max-Egon-Schanze on the new ski jump. It was usually the last big competition in Black Forest at the end of the winter season and always an event with high-ranking international participants.
After the war ski jumping at Feldbergschanze had been reanimated from 1949 on. In 1953 it had a critical point of 80 meters. Helmut Recknagel jumped a new hill record with 90 meters in 1963. A profile changing of the ski jumping hill followed in 1966/67 and after that it is known that Switzerland’s Walter Steiner realized a record distance of 93.5 m. In 1989/90 a last modernization of the profile was made, but then in 1992 an Euro-Cup competition was the last international tournament. After that the ski jumping hill was closed and today only some parts of the hill, on which nearly all great ski jumpers of their time have passed in about a period of 70 years, have rested and are still visible.

Hallo guten tag, gibt es vom Fahler Loch historische Unterlagen von einer Straßenbau Baustelle der Firma Josef Doll im Jahre 1953 ? Ich habe ein Paar Fotos von damals und bin auf der Suche nach weiteren Fotos oder Infos zu der Zeit wo genau die Straße gebaut wurde. Mein Vater war dort mit einem Dolberg Bagger in der Firma Josef Doll ( mein Onkel) tätig.
