Ski Jumping

Ski Jumping

Ski jumping at the Olympic Games is contested on two different hills, designated as “normal” and “large” based on the furthest distance that a jumper is able to safely travel. Normal hills are between 85m and 109m while large hills are greater than 110m.

Nordic Combined

Nordic Combined

Nordic combined incorporates ski jumping and cross-country skiing. It is the last sport on the Olympic program that is contested only by men. The ski jumping portion of the competition is held first, followed by a cross-country skiing pursuit race later that same day. The top finisher in ski jumping will be the first to start the cross-country race in which the start intervals are determined by the scores from the ski jumping. The first skier to cross the finish line is the winner.

Freestyle Skiing

Freestyle Skiing

Freestyle skiing is divided into five disciplines, four of which include a judged component as skiers are evaluated on their technical skills.
