History:

In autumn 1965, SC Obergoms, which was very successful in cross-country skiing at the time, began building its first own ski jumping hill at Oberwald. The inrun scaffolding of the K53 hill could be erected with expenses of 15,000 Swiss francs, but then the funds to complete the hill were not available. The project was then revived for the hosting of the Swiss Junior Championships in March 1972, with a provisional 45-meter hill being constructed first.
This ski jump was renovated in 1973, and in January 1974 the Upper Valais championships and a national Combined competition took place there for the first time. In addition, a K70 hill should follow for 200,000 francs - but this was never realized. Nevertheless, Oberwald established itself in the 1970s with numerous local and national competitions at the youth level. At the beginning of the 1980s, however, interest in ski jumping decreased significantly and the hill became dilapidated. Presumably, it was dismantled already in 1983.
