For the third time, from the 5th to the 17th of February 2019, Åre will host the FIS Alpine World Ski Championships, the world's second largest winter sports event after the Olympics. SkiStar is the official title sponsor of the Championships which will be an event with a combination of thrilling races and experiences.
As the title sponsor of the Championships, we want to spread the pleasure of skiing together with Valle and increase international awareness of SkiStar and our ski resorts: Sälen, Åre, Vemdalen, Trysil, Hemsedal and St. Johann to people from every corner of the globe.
Plenty of space on the ski slopes
A visit to Åre during the Championships means that you get to see world class alpine races, experience the international atmosphere and, last but not least, do a lot of skiing yourself. Most of the events will take place around the Alpine National Arena, so throughout Duved, the high zone area and in Sadeln/Björnen, there are large areas available for you to ski in, and there are hardly any queues for the lifts.
Valle is a cheerleader
It goes without saying that Valle has been given the honorary jobs of cheerleader and mascot for the World Ski Championships. Valle will be cheering on all the athletes and ensuring that all the visitors enjoy a pleasant experience at the Championships.
Stars compete in the SkiStar Invitational
On 12 February, SkiStar Invitational takes place where Alpine stars such as Stenmark, Pärson, Byggmark, Nyberg, Pietilä Holmner, Alphand and Büchel compete in parallel slalom. The tournament is held in collaboration with Thomas Fogdös' Active Life Foundation that contributes to the care and rehabilitation of active sports people. Don't miss your chance to see the former superstars compete again!
