Alpine Skiing World Cup 2017/2018: Calendar with dates and venues

With the countdown clock reading just a couple of months, the buzz surrounding the Alpine Skiing World Cup starting October 28, 2017 with the Ladies’ and Men’s Giant Slalom in Sölden is all around. About 80 races on three different continents will decide who will be celebrating holding one of the crystal globes in the end. Plenty of tried and true World Cup venues shape this season’s Alpine Skiing World Cup, yet there are several new destinations on its list, such as the ladies’ slalom in Ofterschwang and the World Cup Final taking place in Åre, Sweden.

We’ve taken a closer look at this year’s Alpine Skiing World Cup 2017/2018 calendar and hence provided the men’s and ladies’ calendar with all dates, venues, and start times.

This Season’s Venues

Stealing a glance on the new FIS calendar, there is no way to whitewash the upcoming events: It is definitely going to be a long, exhausting, and stressful season for all pro skiers. The traditional season opening in Sölden will take place at the end of October of this year. After another event in Levi, the skiers are crossing the pond, heading towards North America. After the World Cup races in Beaver Creek and Lake Louise had been cancelled last year due to lack of snow, making this the first time in years that the resorts could not host World Cup events, both ski resorts are set to host alpine World Cup races for the 2017/2018 season.

City Event on New Year’s Day in Oslo

At the beginning of December, all competitors will be flying back to Europe, attending one event after another. There are barely any changes affecting the men’s calendar. Merely Santa Catarina is being replaced by Bormio after three years serving as a venue for Downhill and Alpine Combined. Highlights such as the Downhill discipline in Kitzbühel, Gröden, Garmisch-Partenkirchen, or Wengen, as well as the technical disciplines in Val d’Isère, Madonna di Campiglio, Schladming, and Alta Badia and its Parallel Giant Slalom are not to be missed in this year’s season 2017/2018. Moreover, there will be a new City Event on New Year’s Day taking place in Oslo, Norway for both ladies and men.

Ofterschwang’s back in the game

It has been four years since Ofterschwang last served as one of numerous winter sports venues for the Alpine Skiing World Cup, but changes were being made in this season’s ladies’ calendar. Ofterschwang, located in Bavaria, is back in the game - and thus back as a venue. Aside from that, the following venues are also back at play: Bad Kleinkirchheim, Lenzerheide, and Lienz. Flachau, Killington, Maribor, Cortina d'Ampezzo and Crans Montana have been tried and tested, hence all four are part of the upcoming Alpine Skiing World Cup, whereas Semmering, Sestriere or Zauchensee will not be hosting any disciplines.

World Cup Final in Sweden

In mid-March, Åre will host the Alpine Skiing World Cup Final, where the winners, both ladies and men, of the individual disciplines are determined and awarded the coveted crystal globes. The venue will serve as some kind of rehearsal, as the Alpine World Ski Championships 2019 are scheduled to take place from February 5, 2019 to February 17, 2019 in Åre, Sweden.

Kicking off in February 2018, the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea are just seven months away and definitely one of the season’s highlights, despite the fact that the Olympic events do not count in the World Cup standings. Scheduled to take place from February 11, 2018 to February 23, 2018, medals will be awarded in five disciplines: Downhill, Super G, Alpine Combined, Giant Slalom as well as Slalom.

While the alpine technical events will be hosted in Yongpyong, the alpine speed events will take place in Jeongseon. In order to be able to follow all the competitions and disciplines, you have got to get up very early in the morning, as the 2018 Winter Olympics will be broadcast live across all time zones, thus in the early morning hours when living in Central Europe.
