Courchevel-Meribel Will Host the 2023 Alpine Ski World Championships

COSTA NAVARINO, Greece – The French resorts of Courchevel and Meribel will host the 2023 Alpine Ski World Championships, the International Ski Federation (FIS) Congress held in the Greek town of Costa Navarino decided on Thursday.

Courchevel-Meribel won with 9-6 votes over the Austrian town of Saalbach to host the World Cup in five years’ time.

The next World Alpine Skiing Championships – already designated – are scheduled to take place in the Swedish resort of Are in 2019 and then in Cortina d’Ampezzo in Italy two years later.

It is the first time since 2009 that France will host the FIS World Ski Championships, then held in Val d’Isere.

The Austrians, though disappointed, are already looking to the future. “We are now supporting our friends from France and cross fingers for great events in Courchevel-Meribel in 2023. On our side, we are not giving up: we will be candidate for the 2025 FIS World Ski Championships and hope to bring the event to Saalbach,” said the president of the Salzburg Ski Association, Bartl Gensbichler.
