The defending champions from the previous season were Kamil Stoch from Poland, Peter Prevc from Slovenia as defending ski flying champion, and Sara Takanashi from Japan.

The 63rd Four Hills Tournament offered extra prize money. Stefan Kraft of Austria won the tournament for the first time, followed by Michael Hayböck of Austria and Peter Prevc.

February 2015 saw an improvement of the world record in ski jumping distance. On 14 February, Peter Prevc set the new mark with 250 m (820 ft) in Vikersund, Norway. His achievement was beaten the next day by Anders Fannemel from Norway with 251 m (823 ft), which was the world record until March 2017.

Peter Prevc and Jurij Tepeš became the sixth and seventh man in ski jumping history to achieve a "perfect jump", with all five judges awarding them top style marks (5x20). This took place in Planica on 20 March (Prevc) and 22 March (Tepeš).

Severin Freund became the World Cup winner for the first time. Freund and Prevc ended the season with the identical number of points but Freund was awarded the title on the basis of higher number of victories during the season (9 for Freund and 3 for Prevc).[2] Prevc defended the Ski flying title and Germany won the Nations cup.

In ladies' World cup Daniela Iraschko-Stolz won her first overall title and Austria won their first Nations cup.
