History:

When wintersports came to the Rhön mountain area, the Rhön-Club Weissenbrunn wanted to offer its members the opportunity to practice ski jumping, next to cross country. In 1950, the chairmen of RCO and Florian Reulbach began with the construction works for the Schachenbergschanze. These took two years due to the fact that the volunteers only could work in the evening hours after they finished their regular workshifts.
In 1982, the wintersports club Weissenbrunn was founded, which consisted of a Nordic and an Alpine section. The year after, a conversion of the outrun area took place. Members of the US Army, which was stationed near the ski jumping hill, took part of that as well. The area, where the Schachenbergschanze was located, became meanwhile a military exclusion zone.
The last competition took place on February 18th 1990, shortly after the German unification. Still, ski jumping is a part of WSV Weissenbrunn. Together with RWV Haselbach, a common project for the redeveloping of the Kreuzbergschanzen was founded. Nowadays it is called "Rhönadler" ("Eagles of Rhön") and consists of a dozen ski jumpers. Although WSV made the exit from the common contract of use of the ski jumps, the partnership is supposed to be continued.
