The full FIS Alpine Skiing World Cup Calendar for 22/23 has been released. There will be a total of 43 men’s races in 21 different resorts. Last week, members of the International Ski Federation (FIS) met in Brides-les-Bains in Savoie, France, to inspect the venue for the World Ski Championships (WSC) in February 2023.

The men’s tour starts in Sölden, Austria, next week Sunday, October 23. The women kick off the season the day before, on Saturday, October 22. The course in Sölden just passed “Snow Control” yesterday. FIS Race directors Markus Mayr and Janez Hladnik, gave the green light for the World Cup opening after a final inspection with head of the Austrian ski organization ‘ÖSV’ Mario Reiter, the Chief of Race Isidor Grüner, and the Race Director Rainer Gstrein to ensure the competition slope will be in top condition and ready for the world’s best skiers. The AUDI FIS Ski World Cup in Sölden consists of the Women’s Giant Slalom on Saturday, October 22, and Men’s Giant Slalom on Sunday, October 23. On both days the 1st run will be held at 10.00 CET and the 2nd run at 13:00 CET.

You may wonder what events are best to watch. Tickets will be available for all events. Famous courses are of course Kitzbühel’s Hahnenkamm Race on the ‘Streif’ race course and Wengen’s Lauberhorn course in Switzerland. This year’s World Cup events in North America in Lake Louise, Beaver Creek, Palisade’s Tahoe, and Aspen will definitely draw large crowds.

Another highlight will certainly be the World Ski Championships in Courchevel Méribel in February. Alpine World Championships have been held in odd-numbered years since 1985. The last time America hosted the World Championships in Alpine Skiing was in 2015 in Vail and Beaver Creek, CO.

Having said that, if you get the chance to watch any of the World Cup events, they are all incredible to watch. The atmosphere at these events is always amazing and many venues have special packages with VIP areas and after-parties. It is a unique experience to be in the crowd with supporters from all over the world and cheer on the world’s best ski racers.
