The World Alpine Skiing Championship, organised by the International Ski Federation
(IFS) since 1931, is the world’s most important international Alpine ski competition.
The Championship was held this year from 4 to 17 February at Sweden‘s largest ski resort in Åre.
Åre is a municipality located in the middle region of Sweden, at the foot of the Åreskutan (1420 meters) mountain. It is an alpine ski centre featuring 91 kilometres (56.5 miles) of tracks.
This is not the first time that these championships are held in the Swedish city. They were held for the first time in 1954 and again in 2007.
