World Cup Åre is a classic organizer for women World Cup races, as well as the former organizer for the WCS 1954 & 2007.
Åre is a home venue for Kajsa Kling from Swedish National Alpine Ski Team. This venue is the Swedish Alpine National Arena for both the Swedish National Alpine Ski Team and for Swedish and International Ski Clubs in general.
Åre is the central destination for Alpine skiing in Scandinavia and it is one of the most popular destinations to visit for Swedish skiers/guests along the winter time.
Åre is the host for 3 World Cup Events during 2014; AUDI FIS Ski Alpine World Cup, AUDI Ski Cross World Cup and Freestyle World Cup. Åre is known as a party village and it sometimes called “little Stockholm”, because of its fabulous nightlife and a lot´s of great restaurants and shops.
As predicted the wind was blowing over Are this morning and strong guts over xxx km/h forced the organisers to cancel the last events scheduled on Sunday; the ladies’ giant slalom and the men’s slalom.
The races at the World Cup Finals in Are went into the last round and both the cup and the race win went to Austria's Marcel Hirscher.
Longines ambassadors Mikaela Shiffrin and Aksel Lund Svindal each had a piece of wisdom to offer the teenage athletes competing in the Longines Future Ski Champions race.
Like with teams and athletes, the foundation for a successful winter are made in the summer. One part of the preparation for the FIS team is the official FIS inspection that takes place at almost every World Cup venue.
The last World Cup competition to be held in Åre before the Finals in 2018 saw Slovakia's Petra Vlhova emerge victorious for the first time in her career.
USA's Mikaela Shiffrin extented her lead from the first run to claim her third consecutive slalom win of the season on Saturday.
