2007–08 Four Hills Tournament

The 2007–08 Four Hills Tournament was held in only three of the traditional venues of Oberstdorf, Garmisch-Partenkirchen and Bischofshofen, located in Germany and Austria. The competition at Innsbruck was cancelled due to adverse weather conditions and replaced by an additional visit to Bischofshofen.

Finland's Janne Ahonen won his record fifth overall title after winning the last two events at Bischofshofen, and finishing on the podium in the two others. Overall World Cup leader Thomas Morgenstern of Austria finished second overall, and also claimed the individual win at Oberstdorf. The event at Garmish-Partenkirchen was won by Austrian Gregor Schlierenzauer, who finished 12th overall (he was third overall after three events, but dropped in the standings when he was knocked out in the first round of the last competition).
