FIS ALPINE WORLD SKI CHAMPIONSHIPS

SE
5-17 February 2019

Held every two years and almost certainly the most important event in alpine ski racing, the last FIS Alpine World Ski Championships were held in the exclusive Swiss lakeside resort of St. Moritz. This year’s host city of Åre in Sweden is a leading Scandinavian ski resort, and was selected at the FIS Congress in Barcelona in June 2014. Very much a prestigious gathering, winter athletes from more than 70 nations will compete in a packed two-week schedule of 11 racing events, and will see new world champions crowned in downhill, super-G, giant slalom, slalom, alpine combined and the alpine team event, amongst others. For a truly VIP experience and to avoid the crowds, purchase a Lounge 2007 pass to use the exclusive two-floor tent just next to the finish line, at the very center of action. Meanwhile, away from the slopes, visitors will be entertained by a variety of shows, DJs and live bands until the early hours.
