In the 1960s, on the basis of the initiative of TSV Grebenhain and with the support of the Hessian Ski Association, the construction of a larger ski jump in the community was tackled. The planning and construction were in the hands of an architect and a civil engineer from Friedberg and Kahl am Main. American pioneers helped with the earthworks with their technology. The ski jump had a 17.5 meter high wooden inrun tower and the inrun length was about 40 meters. The ski jumping facility received a complete Elasdur plastic mat covering for summer operation. The second plastic covered ski jump in Hesse was inaugurated in September 1970 and was named after the first skier in Vogelsberg - Wilhelm Dillemuth. The jumping operation lasted only about 10 years, with district championships and regional competitions taking place primarily.
