The following places were taken by Melanie Faißt (GER), Line Jahr (NOR) and Ulrike Gräßler (GER, Fischer).
Gräßler fights for third place overall
Only three hours after the first competition already the second one was started. But due to bad weather conditions only the first jump was counted and the second round was canceled. With by far the longest jump of the day Sara Takanashi was the winner of this competition. She compensated a not so good landing with this length. Second place went to Sarah Hendrickson. Ulrike Gräßler took third place and still has the chance to get third in the Overall World Cup. The following places went to Line Jahr, Coline Mattel (FRA, Fischer) and Jessica Jerome (USA).
