The FIS Alpine Ski World Cup is the largest international alpine skiing competition held annually. It is considered the premier alpine ski racing competition along with the Winter Olympics and the FIS Alpine World Ski Championships.

The World Cup was promoted in 1966 by a group of ski racing friends which included French journalist Serge Lang and the alpine ski team directors Honore Bonnet from France and Bob Beattie from the USA. The new competition was soon backed by International Ski Federation president Marc Hodler during the FIS Alpine World Ski Championships 1966 at Portillo, Chile, and became an official FIS event in 1967.

The inaugural World Cup race, a Slalom, was held on January 5, 1967, in Berchtesgaden (Germany).

The 2023-2024 FIS Alpine Ski World Cup will be the 58th World Cup season in Alpine Skiing for both Men and Women. The season kicks off on October 28, 2023, in Sölden (Austria), and will conclude on March 24, 2024, at the Finals in Saalbach (Austria).

The FIS Council Spring Meeting held in Zurich on Wednesday, 24th May, approved the Audi FIS Alpine Ski World Cup Calendar for the upcoming 2023-2024 season.

The Council confirmed there are three Candidates for the 2029 FIS Alpine World Ski Championships, Soldeu (AND), Val Gardena (ITA), and Narvik (NOR).

Some returns, some new venues and, of course, the Classics will be on the Ski Circus next winter. In a season with no Winter Olympics or Alpine Ski World Championships, the weeks in February remain open, and therefore, It was considered to give the opportunity to organizers that do not always manage to be included in the calendar.

The traditional season opener in Sölden (Austria) has been delayed by a week and as a consequence also the World Cup Finals in Saalbach Hinterglemm (Austria) will last for two weeks. The technical events will be held in the first week and the speed events in the second week.

The Speed Opening in Zermatt-Cervinia (Switzerland-Italy) has also been pushed back to the end of November. Men will race on November 11th and 12th, and the Women on the 18th and 19th, 2023. The event had been scheduled to debut last season but had to be canceled.

The 2023-2024 Alpine Ski World Cup will consist of 90 events in four disciplines (Slalom, Downhill, Giant Slalom, and Super-G).

On the Women's side a balanced calendar with 23 Speed and 22 Tech events: 12 Downhills and 11 events in Super-G, Giant Slalom, and Slalom.

The women's World Cup revisits some ski resorts on the calendar that were missing last season, such as Val D'Isere (France) and Garmisch Partenkirchen (Germany) with speed disciplines, and return to Jasna (Slovakia) and Val Di Fassa (Italy), which had been missing for a few years.

The venue for the 2022-2023 season Finals, Soldeu El Tarter (Andorra), will host a Women's Giant Slalom and a Slalom on February 10th and 11th of next year.

The Men's World Cup is a little more unbalanced with 21 Speed and 24 Tech events: 13 Downhill races, 8 Super-G, 11 Giant Slalom, and 13 Slalom will be on next season's calendar. The Men's calendar features a schedule of great classics with the return of Bansko (Bulgary) and Kvitjell (Norway) and the inclusion of Gurgl (Austria), which will host a World Cup race for the first time.

In autumn 2023, Ötztal will become the center of the Alpine Ski World Cup twice within a few weeks. At the end of October, once again, the Rettenbach Glacier in Sölden will host the season kick-off with two Giant Slalom events. And in mid-November, on 18 November, the slope of Kirchenkar in Hochgurgl will host the first Men's Slalom of the 2023-2024 winter season.

The Ski World Cup will return to Garmisch-Partenkirchen next season with both Men's and Women's races. As the organizing committee has announced, the ski resort will host two Super-G races on January 27th and 28th, 2024. After a two-year break, a women's Downhill and Super-G are scheduled on February 3rd and 4th, 2024.

Also, after a successful trial run during the Noraam Cup, Mont Tremblant (Canada) replaces Lake Louise in the women's calendar.

Following the proposal submitted last season by the athletes' commission and after a successful trial run during the Junior World Championships in St. Anton am Arlberg (Austria), it was decided at the FIS Council Spring Meeting held in Zurich in May to give the Team Alpine Combined its first chance during the next World Cup season. It consists of a Downhill or Super-G run and a Slalom run competed by nations who will field their best athletes in the individual disciplines. The first two events were planned to be held in Kitzbühel (Austria) and Crans Montana.

But during the World Cup sub-committee meeting held in Zurich in September, the format of the Team Combined was discussed at length. The committee’s recommendation to the FIS Council is not to include the Team Combined on the 2023-24 World Cup calendar to allow more time to analyze and work on detailed rules to improve the product while respecting Fair Play. The Team Combined is still planned to be a part of the program of future major events such as the FIS Alpine World Ski Championships.
