The world’s best skiers are coming to Åre for two weeks between 4-17 February to compete for the coveted World Championship titles.

Medals will be awarded and champions celebrated in the park and the central square will be the obvious gathering place adorned in first-class World Cup style. The Alpine World Championships 2019 will offer an unforgettable atmosphere and memories for life. Warm welcome!


Åre’s built a of routine of organizing championships. It’s the third time the village has had the honour of hosting an Alpine World Championships. Over 600 riders from 65 different nations will be on-site fighting for World Championships medals in Downhill, Slalom, Giant Slalom, Super-G, National and Alpine competitions. Between TV companies, the International Ski Federation FIS, sponsors, media and volunteers, it is expected that 120,000 visitors will be here for the championships.

All competitions will be conducted at the Alpine National Arena. For more information read here. Slalom and Giant Slalom qualifications will be held at Hamrebacken in Duved. Read here for information about start times.

A festival for the people

The feeling of standing at the finish line, on the stands or around the track, and feel the speed and energy of the riders is a unique experience. An undeniable atmosphere is created when pulses are high, when adrenaline’s pumping and the energy is off the scale. An interplay between the riders and the audience can lift the entire championship and make it a festival that it is, and will be.

It’s not just the Alpine National Arena where the festive atmosphere can be enjoyed, but the whole of Åre dressed in the World Championships theme. Åre park turns into a Medal Plaza where we’ll cheer on our alpine stars together and Åre Square will be extra cosy with fires and various happenings during the championship.
