Aspen is hosting the 2017 Audi FIS Ski World Cup Men’s and Women’s Finals in March, 2017. A mountain town with a decades-long history of ski racing, Aspen offers the perfect setting for an international competition. According to Aspen Skiing Company CEO Mike Kaplan, the Ski World Cup Finals “brings us back to our roots...our very beginning as a ski town, as the 1950 FIS championships really put us on the world stage for winter sports.”
Hosting the Ski World Cup Finals says a lot about Aspen. The Ski World Cup Finals have been held outside of the US for the last 20 years. So, the US ski racing community is excited to have the 2017 Ski World Cup Finals stateside for the first time in more than two decades. Also, while Aspen has hosted World Cup women’s races nearly every year, Aspen Mountain hasn’t hosted a Ski World Cup event for men since 2001, so it’ll be a pleasure to have the gents back on the hill.
What are the FIS Ski World Cup Finals?
After spending the winter competing at World Cup events all over the world, the season’s top downhill skiers convene in Aspen for the Ski World Cup Finals. They’ll compete for a World Cup season title and crystal globe trophy in Downhill, Slalom, Giant Slalom, Super G, and the Nation’s Team Event.
A Week of Festivities
The Aspen Skiing Company and the City of Aspen have created a week of fun events and activities planned during the Ski World Cup Finals. The town will take on a festive air as Wagner Park transforms into an International Village, with parties, events and live music daily, culminating in a community-wide celebration. All that in addition to the thrilling competition itself, where the finest ski athletes from all over the world will streak down Aspen Mountain in downhill, super G, slalom and giant slalom races. They will definitely need you to cheer them on, as they fly down the course!
