The journey that we started in Sölden in October will come to an end in March with the World Cup Finals in Saalbach Hinterglemm.

Since 1993 the International Ski Federation has hosted a World Cup Final at the end of each season in March. During the Finals, Men's and Women's races are held in four disciplines: Downhill, Super-G, Slalom, and Giant Slalom. Only a limited number of racers are invited to ski at the Finals, including the top 25 in the World Cup standings in each discipline, plus the current junior World Champions in each discipline, with World Cup points only awarded to the top 15 finishers in each race.

From 16 to 24 March, the Finals of the Audi FIS Alpine Ski World Cup 2023-2024 will take place on the Zwölferkogel in Saalbach Hinterglemm, the venue for the 2025 Alpine World Ski Championships.

For the first time, the World Cup Finals will last for two weeks. The technical events will be held in the first week and the speed events in the second week.

The Zwölferkogel in Hinterglemm is the venue for all disciplines, providing optimal conditions for the athletes as well as the entire production team. The central location, with only one finish area, facilitates the coordination between sports and visitors. The already existing infrastructure is used in the best possible way. As far as the sports facilities are concerned, they have already been tested in various races following their adaptation, based on the most recent sports data. The reconstruction of the Zwölferkogel lift, which was started immediately after the end of the season in March 2019, will give the finish area a new character and will offer considerable advantages and a reduced workload for the sport in the future.
