Alpine World Ski Championships to be held in Norway for the first time

A historic day for Norway: The Alpine World Ski Championships in 2029 will be held in Narvik, Norway. This decision was announced by the International Ski and Snowboard Federation (FIS) at the congress in the Icelandic capital Reykjavik. This means that Norway will host the Alpine World Championship competitions for the first time. 

"This is a monumental day for Norwegian skiing. The FIS World Championships is one of the world’s largest sporting events, viewed by millions globally. Norway has long been recognized as a top alpine nation, and now we can finally host the Alpine World Championships at home", says Tove Moe Dyrhaug, president of the Norwegian Ski Federation.

Narvik, which is located north of the Arctic Circle, succeeded against Soldeu from the small Pyrenean state of Andorra and Val Gardena in Italy.
