It was only a small K-20 hill, and it was torn down after three years of use.New hills2003 saw the start date of the construction of four new ultra-modern ski jumping hills in Eschbach. After two years of construction the facility was opened for use. The ski jump hills were installed with green summer plastic coverings that are substitutes for snow.

While building the hill, many members of Einsiedeln Ski club helped the workers with the construction for example placing the plastic mattings on all four hills.

In the summer of 2005 the 12 million Swiss franc project hosted Continental Cup and World Cup Grand Prix ski jumping competitions.The Einsiedeln now hosts the World Cup of ski jumping the Summer Grand Prix competitions in both Ski jumping and Nordic combined every year.After opening in 2005 the four ski jumps had the sponsored names of AKAD-schanze (K-105), Swisscom-, große and kleine KPT-Schanze. But then in the spring of 2009 the name of the AKAD-schanze (K-105) was changed too Andreas Küttel-Schanze, to honor ski jumper Andreas Küttel who was born in Einsiedeln. The smaller K-70 hill also had its name changed to Simon Ammann-Schanze.
