The 2017/18 season will see the final test events for Åre 2019: the third edition of the World Cup Stockholm City Event and the FIS World Cup Finals 2018 in Åre.
In a few days, the representatives of the global ski family will gather in Portoroz, Slovenia, for the so-called FIS Calendar Conference held from 24-27 May. The spring meetings of the FIS technical committees will assess the past season and look forward to the upcoming Olympic season 2017/2018.
For Åre 2019, the Portoroz meetings are an important opportunity to stay informed of any rule changes and other developments and to provide an update on the event’s preparations to FIS’s technical committees. Most importantly, however, the FIS Calendar Conference – traditionally followed by a FIS Council meeting – will confirm the calendars for the following season.
For Åre 2019 organizers, the Olympic season will feature the two final and critically important test events:
The third edition of the Audi FIS Ski World Cup City Event at Stockholm’s home mountain Hammarbybacken is set to take place on Tuesday, 30 January 2018. After the initial two editions, the parallel slalom event featuring 32 top tech skiers will deliver another exciting night show to a full house of animated ski fans.
From 14-18 March 2018, the best of the world’s elite racers – ladies and men – will come to Åre for a full week of racing and a total of nine races including downhill, super-G, giant slalom, slalom and the alpine team event. Besides awarding almost 1.2 million Swiss Francs in prize money, the World Cup Finals will culminate in the presentation of the coveted FIS World Cup crystal globes, skiing’s premiere prizes denoting the best skiers based on their performances in the course of an entire season.
