It’s been decided: The FIS Alpine Skiing World Championships 2023 will take place at the legendary French ski resorts of Courchevel and Méribel, in Les Trois Vallées. The decision was announced at the 51st FIS International Ski Congress in Costa Navarino, Greece, after months of lobbying from Courchevel-Méribel and their worthy opponent, the Austrian ski resort of Saalbach-Hinterglemm, which was also shortlisted as a possible venue for the 2023 FIS World Championships.
