History:

At the foot of Weilsberg, which is with 701 m altitude the fourth-highest mountain in Taunus, at the town Niederreifenberg a ski jumping hill was completed by the help of U.S. soldiers in 1957. Already a few years before, a temporal ski jump had been set up there, where distances of up to 50 meters could be reached, and so the new Weilsbergschanze with its 15 meter high wooden inrun tower should make jumps on 65 meters possible. In the end, only jumps on around 40 meters could be realized, but nevertheless the Hessian Championships of Nordic Combined could be organized in 1963.
In 1964 50,000 DM were invested by the Hessian ski association to renovate the hill. In 1971 a new hill record of 52 meters could be set up, but in the same year a 16-year-old ski jumper crashed and remained paraplegic. As a consequence the ski jump was closed due to constructional failures and removed.
