History:

With the founding of the BSG Traktor Massanei, the ski jump on Gebersbacher Straße was created by the Waldheim friends of winter sports. The ski jump had a wooden inrun tower, for which the local forest owners provided the material for construction. After the inauguration in 1952 under the name "Friedensschanze", the championship of the Döbeln district in 1954 was the first major competition. When there were good snow conditions, there was always jumping on the hill in the winters. An additional built-in hatch in the inrun was used for the first time during the SG Dynamo Waldheim night jumping event in 1963 in front of over 700 spectators.
At the beginning of the 1970s, the outdated ski jump was closed. Later it was renewed with a smaller profile. The inrun was now a steel construction and the critical point was 20 meters. The hill, which was covered with plastic matting in 1985, existed until 1990, since after that the ski jumping division of the club vanished. Lothar Marle was the long-time coach in Waldheim after his active time. As a talent of the Waldheim youth he had been delegated to Klingenthal and in 1972 made the leap into the GDR national team of the Nordic Combined.
There was also a smaller natural hill in Morteltal (record 24 m), which was also used by the Waldheimers in the 50s and 60s. Since 2010, hobby jumping has often taken place there again in winter.
