History:

Inspired by the Winter Games of Garmisch-Partenkirchen in 1936, a first ski jumping competition at Schongau was held at Schlossberg in 1937. In 1938-39, the business owner and structural engineer Fritz Holzhey built a 40-meter ski jumping hill on the western slope of Schneckenbichl with support of the Haindl company. The opening competition was held on January 8, 1939 and winner was Ludwig Böck from Nesselwang with a jump on 39 meters.
After World War II, activities resumed in 1947 with a competition that attracted almost 3,000 spectators. For the 100th anniversary of TSV Schongau in 1963, a very first night competition was held. However, in 1946 Fritz-Holzhey-Schanze had to be closed since a waste paper storage was set up in the outrun. The take-off and steel foundations of the former inrun tower are still visible today.
