Ladies Ski Jumping Season final on Holmenkollen?
What is already a tradition for the men, might also apply to the ladies' Ski Jumping from the upcoming winter: the Holmenkollen in Oslo could become for the ladies what Planica is for the men for many years to come - the location for the FIS ladies Ski Jumping World Cup final.
For the ladies this would also be a premiere, because so far the World Cup competitions are only held on normal hills and the Holmenkollen (HS 134) is a large hill.
A total of 17 events are planned in the ladies World Cup next season.
The Ladies' Summer Grand Prix will begin on August 15th with competitions in the classic sites of Courchevel and Hinterzarten and also include the first mixed competitions with teams consisting of two male and two female jumpers in the Summer Grand Prix. The final events of the summer series will be two competitions in Almaty (KAZ) on September 22nd and 23rd.
