41 competitions in Ladies Skijumping will be held on international levels in the 2012/13 season.
After the FIS congress in Kangwonland (KOR), the official calendars for the upcoming season have been released now. As expected the calendar drafts, that were released already some weeks ago, were changed a little.
Two mixed team competitions in the Summer
In the summer not one, but two mixed team events will be held, the first in Courchevel, the second in Hinterzarten. Almaty (KAZ) will also host two Grand Prix competitions, while the Summer Continental Cups will be held in Villach and Lillehammer.

Season final on a large hill
The World Cup will be kicked-off in November in Lillehammer with another mixed team competition. One of the highlights of the season will be early in December, when the jumpers get the chance to try out the new Olympic Hill in Sochi, where two Continental Cups and two World Cups will be held. Back in Central Europe a World Cup is scheduled in Ramsau. In January four World Cups will be held in Germany, two in Schonach and two in Hinterzarten. After the Junior Wolrd Championships in Liberec, the jumpers will travel to Japan, where World Cups will be held in Sapporo and Zao. Before the World Championships is Val di Fiemme at the end of February two more World Cups will be held in Ljubno. The World Cup final will be held together with the men in Tronheim and Oslo. It is very nice to note, that the final competition of the season will be held on the HS134 Holmenkollbakken in Oslo. The request to hold Ladies’ competitions also on large hills was regularly expressed by many jumpers over the last years.
Continental Cups will be held at the onset of Winter in Notodden and in March in Örnsköldsvik. Two more CoCs will be hosted by Germany and France, but both countries still need to announce where exactly.
