This year, the event takes place on 23rd-26th March, starting with Children’s Day on Thursday 23rd March. On this day, the valley below Ponce is traditionally visited by a number of schools and young sports fans from all over Slovenia. The following three days will be filled with a varied competition and accompanying programme, which attracts a great number of visitors from Slovenia and abroad. All the events are broadcast by a number of renowned media.

Nordic spectacle at Planica

Planica is most famous for the biggest ski flying jump in the world, where almost every year a new record is broken. It was at Planica that a ski jumper first flew more than 100m, way back in 1934, and later, in 1994, it was the venue for the first flight over 200m. Each year the Planica organisers prepare the jump for new and surprising results.

The programme and tickets for the FIS World Jumping Ski Final are available on the official website HERE.
