History:

Already directly after World War II ski jumping activities came up at Lautrach on provisional ski jumps at Reisle-Berg and at Schrofen. After the skiing section of TSV Lautrach/Illerbeuren was founded, in fall 1949 the construction of a ski jumping hill started. It was projected by Gottfried Schedel and located at Kirchtal, opposite the parish church of Lautrach. The opening of Kirchbergschanze was held on January 8, 1950 and attended by 2,500 spectators.
Already in 1952, the ski jump was extended with an inrun structure made from wood and metal according to plans by Heini Klopfer. The following opening competition was won by Toni Brutscher. In the following years, some district and Allgaeu championships were held at Lautrach. From 1961 to 65, permanent flood lighting was installed for night events. This made the ski jump of Lautrach very popular for training also with ski jumpers from Oberstdorf like Sepp Weiler and Max Bolkart.
In 1965 the hill was damaged by a landslide. Only in 1969 Kirchbergschanze could be re-opened with a night competition. However, in 1971 another landslide damaged the ski jump again seriously. The cost of reconstruction was estimated at 100,000 DM and could not be born by the ski club. Thus, in 1982 it was finally decided to deconstruct the ski jump along with the judges’ tower. It is not quite clear who held the final hill record on Kirchbergschanze, probably it is Hermann Anwander of SC Oberstdorf with 47 meters.
