The 2017–18 FIS Ski Jumping World Cup is the 39th World Cup season in ski jumping for men, the 21st official World Cup season in ski flying, and the 7th for ladies. The season begins on 19 November 2017 in Wisła, Poland, and will conclude on 25 March 2018 in Planica, Slovenia.

The highlight of the ladies’ season will be the 1st edition of the “Lillehammer Triple”, contested between 1–3 December 2017 in Lillehammer, with a total of three individual events: two on the normal hill and one on the large hill. The best athletes of these three competitions will receive an additional prize money of €10,000 (divided between the Top 3).

On 16 December 2017, the first ever ladies’ World Cup team event will be held in Hinterzarten.

The 1st edition of a new competition named the “Willingen Five” will take place from 2–4 February 2018 in Willingen. A total of five rounds will count in the final standings: Friday’s qualification round, two individual competition rounds from Saturday and two from Sunday. The Willingen Five overall winner will be awarded with an extra €25,000.

For the first time since the introduction of qualification sessions in the 1990/91 season, the top ten athletes in the World Cup rankings will no longer be “pre-qualified”, and must therefore achieve a result good enough for them to qualify for the competition.

On 30 November 2017, Virág Vörös became first Hungarian ski jumper to perform in World Cup, since Gábor Gellér’s last World Cup start in Garmisch-Partenkirchen ’89.

Lower competitive circuits this season include the Grand Prix, Continental Cup, FIS Cup, FIS Race and Alpen Cup.
