Austria, Germany and Switzerland battle it out to host the International Ski Federation (FIS) World Championships.


Crans Montana in Switzerland, Garmisch-Partenkirchen in Germany and Saalbach in Austria are all vying for the 2025 FIS Alpine World Ski Championships.

Trondheim in Norway has applied for the 2025 FIS Nordic World Ski Championships.

Krasnoyarsk in Russia has applied for the 2025 FIS Freestyle, Snowboard & Freeski World Championships.

"FIS is very pleased to see such high interest in organising our flagship events," said FIS President, Gian Franco Kasper.

"All of the candidates have the potential and experience to organise events at the highest levels and we anticipate their bids to be diverse for the FIS World Championships in 2025."

This year the Alpine event was held at Are in Sweden.

The Nordics were held in Seefeld in Austria though proceedings were upset by a doping scandal.
