2013/14 FIS Ski Jumping World Cup was the 35th World Cup season in ski jumping for men, the 17th official World Cup season in ski flying and the 3rd season for ladies. It begun on 23 November 2013 in Klingenthal, Germany and ended on 23 March 2014 in Planica, Slovenia. A break took place during the season to accommodate the ski jumping event of the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi. From 13 to 16 March 2014, FIS Ski Flying World Championships 2014 took place in Harrachov, Czech Republic.
The defending champions from the previous season were
Gregor Schlierenzauer from Austria, who was also the defending ski flying champion, and Sara Takanashi from Japan.
Four Hills Tournament was won, somewhat unexpectedly, by Thomas Diethart of Austria, who won events in Garmisch-Partenkirchen and Bischofshofen and finished third in Oberstdorf. Before the beginning of the Tournament, Diethart competed at only four World Cup events. Peter Prevc of Slovenia won the Ski Flying Cup with one first and one second place at Kulm flying hill. Due to Planica hill being renovated the World Cup finals took place at HS139 hill instead of the HS215. Only two events therefore counted for the Ski Flying Cup.
Kamil Stoch of Poland won the men's overall title. Stoch was leading the cup standings for most of the season and managed to secure the title in the second-to-last event in Planica. Stoch also won most events of the season (six), followed by Severin Freund of Germany (five) and Prevc (three). Stoch won his first overall title and the first title for Poland since Adam Małysz in 2006. Prevc became the first Slovenian to finish at the overall podium since Primož Peterka who won the 1996-97 and 1997-98 seasons. Freund became the first German to finish at the podium since Sven Hannawald in 2003.
In women's cup, Sara Takanashi won 15 out of 18 events and secured her second consecutive overall title.
Lower competitive circuits this season included the
Grand Prix, Continental Cup and Alpen Cup.
