The Holmenkollen medal is Norwegian skiing's highest award for competitors. It signifies top placings in international championships and other international events, including the Holmenkollen events.

The medal is mostly awarded to skiers in the Nordic events. Ingemar Stenmark of Sweden earned the medal in 1979 as one of only eleven non-Nordic skiers to receive this honor. Stein Eriksen, King Haakon VII, Boghild Niskin, Inger Bjørnbakken, Astrid Sandvik, King Olav V, Erik Håker, Jacob Vaage and King Harald V and Queen Sonja, all from Norway, are the others.
