Josef Straubinger is said to be one of the club founding fathers of TSGV in 1924 and was also among the people who built up the first ski jumping hill at Swabian Waldstetten in 1930. This ski jumping hill located near today’s skiing cabin on the foot of Stuifen (570 m), the local mountain of skiers from Waldstetten, was set up by a large number of unemployed club members. Sportive highlight of the ski club was the organization of 10th Swabian youth skiing day and 1st Reich youth skiing day in winter 1934. But with the sports policy of Third Reich less independency was granted for the clubs and so the skiing department had to be dissolved and later World War II cancelled all skiing activities.
In 1947 the skiing department was re-established and the ski jump reconstructed. Only a fistful of ski jumpers of the club had been performing ski jumping with a very idealistic attitude until around 1960. With bad winters and declining interest of the youth this kind of sports completely ran dry and the ski club only offered alpine and cross-country skiing. The wooden inrun tower of the ski jump was afterwards very likely used as a viewing point on surrounding mountains of Middle Alp, but had to be dismantled due to security reasons in 1970’s.
