One more year to go before the time has finally come: Starting in the 2023/24 season, a women's Four Hills Tournament is to be held for the first time. This was agreed by the Austrian and German Ski Associations together with the FIS.
After long discussions, the women's ski jumpers will thus also get "their" German-Austrian tour around the turn of the year. The time until the first jump of the women's tour is now to be used to clarify all open questions and the respective framework conditions together with all stakeholders.
The plan is for the women's opening jump to take place in Garmisch-Partenkirchen. And always on the same day as the traditional opening jump of the men in Oberstdorf. The second stop and venue of the women's New Year's jumping event will then be Oberstdorf.
How it will continue in neighboring Austria is currently still open. Currently, the Austrian Ski Association is examining the various options at possible locations. However, according to the declared will of the ÖSV, it should be guaranteed in any case to permanently establish a high-quality event series analogous to the men's Four Hills Tournament, which has existed for 70 years.
In the constituent meeting, ÖSV, DSV and FIS also agreed to support another series within the women's ski jumping World Cup. This is intended to create an attractive platform at a later point in the season, in particular for the venues that are currently still on the traditional date of the Four Hills Tournament in the competition calendar.go back
Slovenian Championships? No, World Cup final in Planica. But this weekend clearly belonged to the Slovenian ski jumping team! On day one they managed a 4-fold victory, on day two the team victory and on day three the places 3 - 6. We take our hats off!
Stefan Kraft and Timi Zajc presented themselves in outstanding form in Oberstdorf and secured a podium place each on both days.
