In a Winter Olympics special episode of Top Gear, the Stig was shown doing a ski jump using a snowmobile. According to the Swedish tabloid newspaper Aftonbladet, the snowmobile driver performing the ski jump stunt was Dan Lang, a Swedish snowmobile cross driver.

would love to find out. But guess as someone said, they keep changing the person, depending on whether he has to race around the circuit or test some weird car or perform those crazy stunts like in the 'top gear winter olympics'.
