History:

In 1928, the Kirchberg ski club began building a ski jump on the northern slope of the Gaisberg, in a convenient location near the train station. The inauguration of the natural hill took place on December 22nd, 1929. After that, several ski jumping competitions took place in the first winter and the hill was further improved so that nice jumps of 30 meters were possible. In the summer of 1933, however, it was decided to demolish the ski jumping hill due to a lack of interest.
In 1936, the Gaisbergschanze was rebuilt and a smaller youth hill was added. From then on, the regional competition "Josefispringen" was held annually on March 19th. After the Second World War, the ski jump was restored in 1947, and a 8 meter high, wooden inrun tower was built, which enabled jumps over 70 meters. In the years that followed, ski jumping flourished in Kirchberg and an annual Tyrolean three-hills tournament was held in Kirchberg, Kitzbühel, and St. Johann. The highlight was the Josefispringen in 1951, which Sepp Bradl won with a hill record in front of 2000 spectators.
At the end of the 1950s, however, the Gaisbergschanze fell into disrepair and a new youth ski jumping facility was built in Stadlwies. A last attempt to reactivate the ski jump at Gaisberg failed in 1973.
