Ski Jumping

Sometimes called the “original extreme sport,” this discipline started with a simple challenge—who can fly the farthest, from a fixed takeoff point? Competitors can reach speeds of more 100 kph and a 250-feet flyover. Scoring is comprised of distance, style, and wind/gate compensation. Most skiers now use a V-pattern during flight to gain extra lift. Events will be held at the Olympic Jumping Complex.

In the individual events, each athlete gets one trial and two scored jumps. The jumper with the highest combined score is the winner.


Competing teams will be scored based upon the combined points of each team. Distance is measured from the takeoff point to the curve of the landing hill where the jumper lands. Bonus points are also possible.


The Mixed Relay Team follows the same rules as the Team event.
