The Austrian ski resort of Saalbach will host the world alpine ski championships in 2025, the international ski federation (FIS) anounced Saturday.
34 years after the 1991 “Sun World Cup”, Saalbach-Hinterglemm will host the World Cup for the second time from February 4th to 23rd, 2025.
Alpine Skiing saw three quality candidates vying for the honor to host the FIS World Ski Championships 2025 with Crans-Montana (SUI), Garmisch Partenkirchen (GER) and Saalbach (AUT). Earning 12 votes, Saalbach won the election ahead of Crans-Montana and Garmsich Partenkirchen, who each finished with one vote.
That the slogan "Wa Are Ready!" is not just an empty phrase was proved in February 2020, when with organisation window of only two weeks, the men’s Downhill and Super-G Ski World Cup races were taken over at short notice and took place on the World Cup course on the Zwölferkogel.
The next world championships are scheduled for the Italian resort of Cortina d’Ampezzo between February 7-21, 2021, before the French resorts of Meribel and Courchevel host the 2023 edition.
