History:

The wintersports section of BSG Motor Schmölln oragnized cross-country runs and downhill competitions in 1950's. Therefore they were assisted by the supporting factory VEB "precision tool" Schmölln (PWS) which transported people with their lorries to the wintersports destinations on a higher altitude in Thuringian Forest during winter months.
A highlight of the development of the section was the construction of a ski jumping hill on the local Pfefferberg. The wooden inrun tower was set up with the support of the carpentry shop Päßiger and the outrun was situated towards the kindergarden of PWS. The ski jump was inaugurated on February 5, 1956 with an audience of 500 spectators and guest jumpers from Altenburg, Schöneck/Vogtland and other places participating.
In subsequent years naturally the ski jump was prepared whenever there were good snow conditions and a small group of skiers competed for "large" distances and good style. Unfortunately this mass sportd activity decreased in mid 1960's, with the dilapidated inrun tower having to be torn down.
