Wielka Krokiew (The Great Krokiew) is a ski jumping venue in Zakopane, Poland. It is a regular venue in the FIS Ski jumping World Cup.
The hill was featured in competitions at the 1939 and 1962 FIS Nordic World Ski Championships as well as the 2001 Universiade.
In 1997, Pope John Paul II, while visiting his native country, celebrated a mass at the hill's stadium.
Since 2001, due to the success of Polish jumper Adam Małysz, Wielka Krokiew has seen some of the largest audiences in world cup ski jumping.
