A break in the schedule was for the 1978 World Championships, held in Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Bavaria, West Germany, between January 29 and February 5, 1978.

During this season, no combined races were included in the World Cup. Combined was resumed in the following season 1978/79. A demonstration parallel slalom race was run as the last race of the season, in Arosa, Switzerland on March 19, 1978, but it did not count in the official standings for either men or women. However, it became the model for a season-ending team parallel slalom race to be run as a part of the season-ending events.
