ski jumping is a fascinating sport game which is mostly popular in Europe. There are some competitor from USA but the only realy qualified jumpers from outside Europe are the Japans.
The best ski jumping teams have been Austrians, Germans and Norwegians for many years, but there have been also brilliant individuals like Simon Ammann from Switzerland and Adam Malysz from Poland.

There are always many laughing and screaming supporters who warm up the cold air and have a great fun when their representatives fly in thin air.

Four Hills Tournament is the most prestigous one. It starts at the end of the year, and the competition in GA-PA takes place always in January 1st.

The host cities of 4H are: Oberstdorf (GER), Garmich-Partenkirchen (GER), Insbruck (AUT), Bischofshofen (AUT).

Since the season 1996/1997 there is a special system for this competition, known as KO (Knock Out). For the first jump the 50 qualified competitors are grouped in pairs (the first and the last, the 2nd and 49th,etc) and they jump two by two. The one out of every pair that receives more points is qualified into the second part (25 competitors). There are also 5 lucky losers - five jumpers knocked out with highest score go for the second round so it makes 30 to jump.

Go and support your flying heroes. Have fun and admire great sportsmen, picturesque landscapes and fresh air!

For many competitions in Winter Cup it is essential to book tickets for many days before competition day.
