Women’s ski jumping is an individual event performed on the normal hill that operates under the same competition format as the corresponding men’s competition.

There are two competition rounds: the first and final rounds. Each athlete gets two jumps and receives a score based on distance and style. The athlete with the highest combined score is the winner.

Women’s ski jumping will make its first appearance in January 2012 at the first Winter Youth Olympic Games in Innsbruck and then two years later at the Olympic Winter Games in Sochi 2014.
