Ski jumping is a sport in which skiers go down a take-off ramp, jump and attempt to land as far as possible down the hill below. In addition to the length of the jump, judges give points for style. The skis used for ski jumping are wide and long (260 to 275 centimeters). Ski jumping is predominantly a winter sport, performed on snow, and is part of the Winter Olympic Games, but can also be performed in summer on artificial surfaces - porcelain or frost rail track on the inrun, plastic on the landing hill.

Ski flying is an extreme version of ski jumping. The events take place in big hills. The difference between ski flying and regular ski jumping is subtle, but ski flying puts more focus on the ability to float through the air and less on pure jumping ability. It's possible to fly more than 200 meters in all the ski flying hills, and the current world record is 239 meters.
