FIS Alpine Ski World Cup 2011

From the 14th December 2011 to the 15th January 2012 the FIS Alpine Ski World Cup will be held at various ski resorts in the north of Italy including; Val Gardena-Groeden, Alta Badia, Cortina d'Ampezzo and Bormio. 

The FIS Alpine World Ski Cup is the Top international circuit of alpine skiing competitions, considered by many to be an even more valuable title than the Winter Olympics or the World Championships, as it requires the competitor to ski at a high level in more than one discipline throughout an entire season as opposed to just a single race. 

The FIS Alpine Ski World Cup was launched in 1966 by a group of ski racing friends, and was quickly backed by the International Ski Federation (FIS), becoming an official event in their calendar in the spring of 1967. Races are held at various European ski resorts in the European Alpes throughout the season and competitors strive to achieve the fastest times in the disciplines of Slalom, Giant Slalom, Downhill and Super G. The races to be held in Italy from the 14th to the 29th December this year and from the 12th to the 15th January next year include Downhill, Giant Slalom and Super G. For more information please visit
