The break in the schedule was for the 1974 World Championships, held February 3–10 at St. Moritz, Switzerland.

Due to the growth of the professional skiing tour (especially in the United States), which now featured World Cup winning stars such as Jean-Claude Killy, Karl Schranz, Patrick Russel, and Jean-Noël Augert, no World Cup races were held in North America for the only time in its history. Instead, the entire season took place in Europe.
