About Ski Jumping
In ski jumping the maximum amount of points an individual/team can score is twenty points for a perfect jump. A total score in ski jumping is a combined score of total style points with distance points. An individual jumps scoring is divided in to three steps: flight, landing, and outrun which is how the jumper does after he/she lands and slides to their finish. In order to qualify their jump, a jumpier must at least pass the K-spot during their flight. A K-spot is a point on the hill that the jumpers have to pass. On a large hill the K-spot is 100 meters, and on a normal hill the K-spot is 75-99 meters. During scoring judges have rules on their scoring. The most points a judge allowed deduct in the flight or landing section of Normal Hill jump is five points. The most they are allowed deduct in the outrun section is 7 points.
