History:

Ostalbschanze was built between 1947 and 1949 on initiative of the local club Schneelaufverein Unterkochen (SVU) and ski activists. These were assisted by locally stationed US soldiers, which had modern equipment.
The natural ski jump was a hotspot for ski jumping in the 1950’s and 1960’s. And so popular ski jumpers such as Max Bolkart (Four Hills Tournament winner in 1959/1960), Ewald Roscher (later national coach of Germany) or even Willi Schuster from Kleinwalsertal, Austria, took part of the competitions. In addition, many spectators came to watch events, sometimes even more than 3000.
However, the history of the ski jump only lasted for about 25 years; the last competition was held in the mid 1970’s. Ever since, the nature is getting back what humans took. Only the steel fundament of the judges’ tower and the take-off are still visible.
The smaller hill is located about one kilometer away from the former normal hill. Its take-off was even used as storage for gadgetry.
There were brief plans for reanimating both hills, but those never became reality.
