History:

The Eigerschanze at Trychelegg, was built in 1907/08 for the VI. Great Ski Race of Switzerland in Grindelwald in 1910. It was the first big competition hill of the Grindelwald Ski Club. In the summer of 1912, the ski jump was rebuilt and from then on allowed jumps of over 30 meters. The Eigerschanze was famous for its steep inrun, short take-off and (too) high flight curve. Competitions were held there regularly in the winters until the early 1920s. Unfortunately, there shall also have been two deaths, which is why it was also called Mörderschanze.
The larger Mettenbergschanze was then built for the 17th Great Swiss Ski Race in 1923. In the 1970s, there was the idea to reactivate the Eiger-Schanze and equip it with a modern profile. For reasons of cost and lack of interest, this was rejected again.
In July 1919, the ski clubs from Grindelwald and Wengen also held a joint summer ski run on the Jungfrau glacier. The Norwegian Harald Smith also took part. Jumping distances of up to 23 meters were achieved.
