The International Ski Federation (FIS) has announced the venues for the 2025 FIS World Championships in Alpine Skiing and Nordic.
Trondheim, located in northwestern Norway, will be hosting the FIS Nordic World Ski Championship. The city was unanimously approved and will host the event for the first time since 1997.
Saalbach, located in central Austria, will be hosting the FIS World Ski Championship. The city will be hosting the event for the first time since 1991, after narrowly missing out on the 2023 world championships to Courchevel and Meribel in France.
Saalbach edged out two other European cities, Crans-Montana, Switzerland, and Garmisch Partenkirchen, Germany. Overall, Saalbach prevailed with 12 votes, while Crans-Montana and Garmisch Partenkirchen had 1 vote each.
“Much like our Nordic World Championships, with Saalbach and Austria, we are going to the heartland of Alpine skiing.” Every time FIS has staged the FIS Alpine World Ski Championship in Austria, it is a special occasion with massive crowds and very professional organization.”
– Gian-Franco Kasper, FIS President
After being canceled in March 2020 due to Covid-19, the FIS World Ski Championships are anticipated to pick back up in Cortina d’Ampezzo, Italy in February 2021.
