The event developed in the late nineteenth century Norway. The event has developed with the passing time since its advent as a sport. The aim of ski jumping is to jump as far as possible and then to ski down a hill-slope. The skiers use long, wide skis during this event. Various jumping techniques are also acquired by the skiers to travel more distance than others. Generally ski jumping is held on natural snow. However, the event can also be staged on artificial surfaces. The sport is governed by the Federation Internationale de Ski or the FIS at the international level.

Ski Jumping in the Winter Games: Ski jumping was included in the Olympic schedule at the 1924 Chamonix Winter Games. Men’s individual large hill was the only event contested at the 1924 Games.
