Wisła and Ski Jumping – Summer Grand Prix and World Cup 2022

29 June 2022

Wisła will once again host ski jumpers and fans of this sport during the Summer Grand Prix, which will take place from July 22nd to 24th this year. This year's World Cup competitions in our city will be held on November 5th-6th, 2022. Where to buy tickets and where to stay?

The Summer Grand Prix, although less popular than the winter World Cup events, provides a great opportunity for ski jumpers to continuously work on their form and for fans to cheer live. Thanks to the modernization of our Malinka ski jump, we now have another international competition venue in Poland.

Adam Małysz Ski Jump in Wisła Malinka

The first ski jump in Wisła was built in 1933. However, this wooden structure underwent a thorough reconstruction and was re-opened in a new form, thanks to the successes of Adam Małysz. The first competitions were held in 2008, and it was then that the ski jump officially took the name of our "Eagle from Wisła." The size of the ski jump is 134 meters, with a construction point at 120 meters. The facility has frozen inrun tracks, an artificial surface, artificial lighting, and a chairlift. The stands can accommodate up to 8,000 people. In 2010, for the first time in history, FIS Grand Prix competitions took place on this ski jump. The longest jump so far, 140.5 meters, was made by Peter Prevc, but it was supported and not counted as a record. The official winter record of 139 meters belongs to Stefan Kraft.

You can also visit the ski jump. A souvenir photo in front of it is a must during your vacation in Wisła! You can take the chairlift up to the tower and see what Wisła looks like from the perspective of ski jumpers. There is also a café and a souvenir shop on-site.

Summer Grand Prix in Wisła (July 23-24, 2022)

Although summer ski jumping Grand Prix events have only been held in Wisła since 2010, the history of LGP dates back to 1994. It was then that three competitions were held on ski jumps in Hinterzarten, Predazzo, and Stams. However, it was not until 1996 that the International Ski Federation (FIS) assigned a points classification to the competitions, similar to the World Cup. It was during the 2012 LGP that mixed team competitions were held for the first time. The Summer Grand Prix events are an important part of the athletes' training and an opportunity to compare their current form with competitors from other nations. LGP has never been included in the general World Cup classification. Adam Małysz and Thomas Morgenstern have most frequently won the overall classification three times each. Dawid Kubacki, Masahiko Harada, and Maciej Kot have won it twice, and Maciej Kot once.
Team competitions also take place during the summer ski jumping events.

This time, however, on July 23rd and 24th in Wisła, individual competitions will be held. The FIS Ski Jumping Grand Prix for both men and women will start on Friday, July 22nd, with the qualifications for both genders. On Saturday, after a trial round, the first round of women's competition will begin at 10:30 a.m., followed by the men's competition at 3:00 p.m. On Sunday, the men's competition is scheduled for 1:00 p.m., and the women's competition for 5:30 p.m.

World Cup in Ski Jumping

The Ski Jumping World Cup has been held since 1979. Following the example of alpine skiing, a series of competitions were created, with results counting toward a joint qualification. The World Cup consists of a four-month cycle of about 30-35 individual and team competitions. To win the large Crystal Globe, athletes must gather the most points throughout the season. The small Crystal Globe goes to the winner of ski flying competitions held on mammoth ski jumps. The best team receives the Nations Cup.
The large Crystal Globe has most frequently been claimed by Fin Matti Nykaenen and Adam Małysz, with our jumper being the only one to achieve this three times in a row. Kamil Stoch has won the award twice.

Wisła and the 2022 Ski Jumping World Cup

For the first time in the history of the World Cup, the ski jumping events in Wisła will take place not on real or artificial snow, but on plastic matting (igelite). The World Cup will kick off with individual competitions in Wisła on November 5th-6th. Why so early? Officially, it is stated that the FIS authorities do not want to compete for viewers' attention with the FIFA World Cup in Qatar. Unofficially, it is also because of changing weather patterns and milder winters, leading us to adapt to the fact that some World Cup events will be held on igelite. Maintaining artificial snow is not only expensive but also environmentally unfriendly. Consequently, there is an increasing call to keep ice on the inrun and use artificial surfaces for the landing. This will also be the case in Wisła. Some people also point out that the igelite surface is safer for ski jumpers than artificial snow at the beginning of the season.
The World Cup finals will take place in Planica at the end of March and the beginning of April.

Where to Buy Tickets for Ski Jumping in Wisła?

Ski jumping fans attending the Summer Grand Prix can purchase tickets through the website. Tickets range from 80 to 250 PLN. However, there are only a few tickets left, so this may be your last chance to get to the Malinka ski jump.
The situation is the same for the World Cup on November 5th-6th. Tickets can be purchased on the same website. Ticket sales will likely begin at the end of September. So, keep an eye out!

Hotel in Wisła Near the Ski Jump

The same situation applies to hotels and places to stay. During the competitions at the Malinka ski jump, it can be challenging to find a hotel room nearby. Therefore, it's a good idea to plan everything in advance. The Vestina Hotel in Wisła is located just over a kilometer from the ski jump. So, you don't have to worry about transportation or a lack of parking spaces at the ski jump. You can leave your car at the hotel and take a short walk along the path that leads from the Vestina Hotel to the ski jump. Our hotel offers comfortable, modern rooms with a TV and reliable Wi-Fi. In the morning, after a good night's sleep, we invite you to enjoy hearty breakfasts. Our hotel packages also include dinner and numerous attractions. If you decide to stay with us for a longer period, whether during the summer or autumn vacation, you will certainly not be bored.
