With almost 20 million viewers in Europe alone, the World Cups ski jumping event was more than successful.
On Sunday, there was approximately 6000 people to show up in Whistler for the World Cups ski jump event. Over 2000 thousand cars packed the parking lots and streets. Organizers of the World Cups ski jump event in Whistler were glad and surprised at such a massive turnout. They also apologized to those who could not find parking or get in.
