Romoren achieved his first World Cup victory in Bischofshofen during the 2002–03 Four Hills Tournament. He later won several more World Cup competitions as well as two World Championship bronze medals in the team large hill event in Val di Fiemme (2003) and Oberstdorf (2005). At the 2006 Winter Olympics in Pragelato, Romoren won a bronze medal in the team large hill event. He also has four medals in the team event at the Ski Flying World Championships with two golds (2004 in Planica; 2006 in Kulm), one silver (2010 in Planica) and a bronze (2008 in Oberstdorf).

On 20 March 2005 in Planica, Romoren set the world record for the sport's longest jump with a distance of 234.5 metres which he later improved to 239 m on the same day. This record stood until 11 February 2011 (during which countryman Johan Remen Evensen jumped 243 m in Vikersund), but his 239 m jump remained the hill record at Planica until 20 March 2015, exactly a decade to the day.
