The Alpine World Ski Championships: Who's Up For Hosting in 2023?

Travel & Tourism
The Alpine World Ski Championships is one of the most prestigious winter sports events, and there is strong competition to be the honourable host. Currently three French ski resorts are being considered as potential locations for the 2023 Alpine World Skiing Championships.

Which Venues are Up for The Honour? After launching their bids to act as host for the 2023 event, the three resorts were put forward by the French Ski Federation (FFS). France has not held the biennial competition since 2009, when it was staged in Val-d’Isère, which happens to be on the list of the three French contenders for the 2023 event. The other two resorts in the running are Chamonix and Courchevel-Méribel.

In order to determine which venue has the best ability to stage the Alpine World Ski Championships, each one will host an International Ski Federation (FIS) Alpine Skiing World Cup event in the 2015/2016 winter season. This will give the venues the chance to prove themselves worthy of having the honour of staging the main competition.

Only after the 2015/2016 World Cup events have been completed will a decision be taken on which venue in France is deemed the most suitable. That was according to Michel Von, the President of FFS, after he confirmed that France was to be put forward as a candidate. He also said that it will be up to the three chosen resorts to stake their claim to the prize and that the final decision would be made in 2016.

If France gets the chance to stage the event, this will be the fifth time that the country has done so. Chamonix hosted in 1937 and 1962, with Grenoble hosting in 1968 and Val-d’Isère in 2009.

Where Will It Be Held Next? The Championships are set to be held in the Swiss resort of St Moritz in 2017 before heading to Are in Sweden for the 2019 competition. Currently, Cortina d’Ampezzo is in the running for holding the event in 2021. It is yet to be confirmed but as it was the sole Italian bidder, it should only be a matter of time.

How to Get There

All of these three French resorts are easy to get to, whether you prefer to fly, travel by Snow Train or by car. The nearest airport is Geneva, an international hub receiving many direct flights daily from several cities in the UK, including London, Manchester and Newcastle. easyJet offer great value flights for as little as £100 return depending on when you fly, but if you do your research you can also fly with British Airways from Gatwick for just as good a deal.

The transfer from Geneva to Meribel, Courchevel or Val-d’Isère is around 2 hours, and it is even less for Chamonix, taking only 1 hour 15 minutes. Book with Shuttle Direct and you can relax in the knowledge that you will have booked a reliable, professional and door-to-door service from Geneva to Meribel, Courchevel, Val-d’Isère or Chamonix.

The Snow Train is another great option for getting to the Alps, with the train taking around 8 hours and only including 1 change in Paris. You do, however, have to organise a transfer from the station to resort, but Shuttle Direct can help there too.

Driving is a popular choice for regular ski goers and with satnav technology today, directions are less of an issue. The autoroutes in France are exceptional and as long as you have snow chains for the last trek up the mountain should you need them, you are all set.

Lukas Johannes is a driver for Shuttle Direct, the number one provider of shared and private airport transfers all over Europe and northern Africa. If you need a transfer from Geneva to Meribel, Lukas and his colleagues can make sure that you get to and from the airport swiftly and safely with your ski luggage and ski equipment.
