Overview

FIS Ski Jumping World Cup comes to the Lake Placid Olympic Jumping Complex February 10-12, 2023

World Cup Ski Jumping is back at the recently modernized and upgraded Olympic Jumping Complex! To say that a Ski Jumping World Cup is due in the U.S. is an understatement, as the last Ski Jumping World Cup in Lake Placid took place in 1990, and the last in the U.S. was in 2004.

This highly anticipated event* will consist of Men’s Ski Jumping on the HS 128 meter ski jump with athletes from around the world, including Poland, Slovenia, Norway, Austria, Germany and more. DJ, announcers, games & giveaways will be on hand as these top athletes from around the world compete for World Cup points. Winter sports don’t get better than in the Winter Sports Capital of the World–Lake Placid!

Join us February 11-12, wave your flag, ring your cowbell, and cheer for your favorite country and athletes!

*Please note: Due to an already high demand of tickets, this event has potential to sell-out on both days, so please purchase your tickets in advance!

Athletes To Watch

The FIS Ski Jumping World Cup field features the best men’s ski jumpers in the world vying for podium finishes and points in the overall World Cup standings in two individual competitions and a Super-Team event.

Live Scoring »

Jumpers from Poland, Austria, and Norway have dominated the top of the World Cup standings this season, with Olympic gold medalist Ryoyu Kobayashi of Japan and Olympic medalist Karl Geiger of Germany not far off. Poland is led by Dawid Kubacki, Piotr Zyla and Kamil Stoch. Kubacki is a three-time Olympian who won bronze medals at the Pyeongchang and Beijing Games. Halvor Egner Granerud, Marius Lindvik, and Robert Johansson lead the way for Norway, while Stefan Kraft, Manuel Fettner, Michael Haybock, Jan Horl, and Daniel Tschofenig top the Austrian contingent. Lindvik soared to the large hill Olympic gold medal in Beijing in 2022. Erik Belshaw, an 18-year-old from Steamboat Springs, Colo., has been the top World Cup jumper for the United States team this season, with Andrew Urlaub and Olympians Decker Dean and Casey Larson also on the U.S. National Team.


Ryoyu Kobayashi won the overall World Cup in the 2021/22 season. He is
the only non-European male winner of the overall World Cup, lifting the
globe in 2018/19 and last season.

  • Kobayashi can become the fourth man to win the overall World Cup at least
    three times, after Matii Nykänen (4), Adam Malysz (4) and Andreas
    Goldberger (3).
  • The most recent man to win the overall World Cup in successive seasons
    was Janne Ahonen in 2003/04 and 2004/05.
  • Kobayashi also won the 2021/22 Four Hills Tournament. He could become
    the first man to win the overall World Cup-Four Hills Tournament double in
    back-to-back years.
  • Kobayashi can claim his third title at the Four Hills Tournament this season,
    having won the competition in 2018/19 and 2021/22. He could join Janne
    Ahonen (5), Jens Weißflog (4), Helmut Recknagel (3), Bjørn Wirkola (3)
    and Kamil Stoch (3) on at least three wins at the tournament.
  • Kobayashi has won 27 World Cup events, one short of moving into joint11th all-time alongside Severin Freund (28). The top 10 all-time of World
    Cup event winners is within his reach this year (Martin Schmitt in 10th with
    30 event wins).

Karl Geiger recorded his second runner-up finish in the overall World Cup
standings last season, after his second-place finish in 2019/20.

  • In the last seven seasons, the runner-up of the previous season won the
    overall World Cup standings in the following season three times: Peter
    Prevc in 2015/16, Kamil Stoch in 2017/18 and Stefan Kraft in 2019/20.
  • Geiger could become the fourth German man to lift the overall World Cup
    standings crystal globe after Jens Weißflog (1983/84, representing East
    Germany), Martin Schmitt (1998/99 and 1999/2000) and Severin Freund
    (2014/15).

Kamil Stoch won the overall World Cup on two previous occasions, in
2013/14 and 2017/18. Only Matti Nykänen (4), Adam Malysz (4) and
Andreas Goldberger (3) have won the men’s overall more than twice.

  • Stoch has finished on the podium in the overall World Cup standings six
    times, most recently a third place in 2020/21. Only Janne Ahonen (8; G2-
    S2-B4) has more podium finishes in the overall World Cup standings.
  • Stoch has won 46 World Cup events in his career, joint-second on the alltime list alongside Janne Ahonen and Matti Nykänen (both 46). Stoch’s last
    World Cup event win was the individual large hill event in Titisee-Neustadt
    on 9 January 2021.

Marius Lindvik won the Olympic gold medal in the individual large hill
event at the Beijing 2022 Olympic Winter Games, becoming the first
Norwegian man to achieve this since Toralf Engan in 1964.

  • Lindvik won five individual World Cup events last season, only Ryoyu
    Kobayashi (8) won more. Lindvik recorded all of those five wins in 2022,
    most of all ski jumpers.
  • Lindvik can become the fifth Norwegian ski jumper to win the overall World
    Cup after Vegard Opaas (1986/87), Espen Bredesen (1993/94), Anders
    Bardal (2011/12) and Halvor Egner Granerud (2020/21). Only Austria (7)
    has more than four different winners of the overall crystal globe.
  • Granerud can become the first Norwegian man to win the overall World
    Cup more than once.

Stefan Kraft (2016/17, 2019/20) could win the men’s overall for a third
time. Only Matti Nykänen (4), Adam Malysz (4) and Andreas Goldberger
(3) have won the men’s overall more than twice.

  • Kraft has recorded 33 wins in World Cup events, third-most amongst
    Austrian ski jumpers (Gregor Schlierenzauer 70, Thomas Morgenstern 39).
  • Only Janne Ahonen (133) and Schlierenzauer (123) have recorded more
    World Cup podium finishes in all events than Kraft (111).
  •  At the age of 41, Simon Ammann will compete in his 26th World Cup
    season. Only Noriaki Kasai (30) has made an appearance in as many
    World Cup seasons.
