As an athletic manager of BSV, very dedicated club member and constructor of the ski jump Andreas Sattler performed the inauguration jump on the first ski jump of Oberammergau, the famous Passion dramatic city, on October 21, 1922. With jumps up to 33 m after that district championships of Werdenfels were performed.
One year later for the young jumper another jump at Osterbichl near the crucifixion group was opened and had been in use until middle 1930’s. With the construction of larger and more snow-secure Kolbenschanze in 1928 the Sattlerschanze was given up. With the help of traffic club and the municipality the WSV ran the ski jumping hill at Kolben until about 1960. Then in 1963 it was tried to enlarge the profile with the help of American military techniques, but due to the very difficult construction underground it became a catastrophic building case, which stayed unsolved despite of many attempts to do so of city and club.
When the Bavarian Skiing Championships in 1935 were given to Oberammergau, the ski club received support by the association and constructed with help of the provision of work and under technical lead of C. J. Luther the new Steckenbergschanze. Its profile ran diagonally over the one of former Sattlerschanze and the judges tower was 6 meters high.
At that time it was said to be the largest natural jump of Germany, on which also the Scandinavian teams practised for the Olympic Winter Games 1936 at Garmisch-Partenkirchen. One year later Norway’s Helmstrøm jumped a new hill record of 74 meters. In 1940 the facility was renamed into “Toni-Neu-Schanze”, since this club member fell in the war.
Three years after the end of war the jump was renovated and competitions were hosted. But after the Nordic Championships of 1966 there were no more competitions, the whole facility orphaned and overgrew. In 1987 the preamble of the publication for the 75th annual of the ski club told: “Our ski jumping hills, once signboard and activation of our city, now are overgrewn by the ravages of time and fell asleep like a sleeping beauty”.
