History:

Already in 1909 the snowshoe club of Böblingen had been founded and after World War I in 1920's the first ski jumping hill was built single-handedly at the "Alte Bürg", situated below today's Forest Cemetry. It was inaugurated on 1925-12-06 and short time later the hill record had been established at 15.5 meters. Tricky was the moat crossing the outrun and forcing falls of many ski jumpers.
Only short time after World War II the skiing section of Sportvereinigung Böblingen became active and constructed the Kurt Beuttler-Schanze at the railway bridge in Stuttgarter Straße with the help of US army. It was completed in December 1948, but with distances up to 21 meters it did not fulfil the expectations.
Already in next spring it was deconstructed and replaced by a complete new-construction after plans of Heini Klopfer. The new 40 meter hill with its wooden inrun tower was built in 2,400 hours of work, but then the winter 1949-50 was very poor of snow. For the opening competition in the spring sun of March 5, 1950 25 truck loads of snow were organized and 26 participants competed in front of an audience of 2,000 spectators.
A smaller junior hill was added to the facility in 1953. But ten years later the ski jumping hills had to be dismantled since they were dilapidating after many years of poor winters and only seldom usage.
