History:

Under the direction of Helmut Schramm, who was already a member of the board of the previous sports club, the BSG Chemie Geraberg built a ski jump in the lower Steintal near Geraberg-Arlesberg with the active support of the residents of Geraberg. Work on the natural hill without an artificial inrun structure began in 1948 and was completed in 1950. With the inauguration of Walther-Schneider-Schanze on March 5th, 1950, which was attended by 1300 spectators, a time began in which ski jumping in Geraberg was met with a great response. Later, even up to 2000 spectators came to attend the competitions on the hill! However, from around 1958 onwards the hill was no longer used. With the construction of a cattle barn at the outrun of the ski jump around 1960, the facility was left to decay. Nevertheless, distinctive changes in the terrain of the inrun and landing slope are still visible today.
Furthermore, for some time there was also a jumping hill in lower Schwarzbachtal.
