Experience in hosting major events!
Known for its savoir-faire, organisational ability, international-quality pistes and its love competitions, it was only natural that Méribel should be chosen as one of the resorts to host the 16th Winter Olympic Games in 1992 (Albertville).
This Savoyard resort confirmed its expertise in high-level sport by hosting a women’s ski world cup in 2013, followed by the world cup finals in 2015. This summer, le Col de la Loze was a highlight of the 2020 Tour du France, and it is on the legendary Roc de Fer piste that the best alpine skiers will compete to win the coveted title of world champion !
A GIANT CELEBRATION OF SKIING
As well as a sporting competition, the World Championships is a festival of skiing that allows everyone to get together and share their passion for the sport, through the events, opening and closing ceremonies, concerts, entertainment and prize-giving ceremonies.
Méribel is proud and happy to host such an event, and the excitement is felt throughout the resort. The Club des Sports and Méribel’s team are already hard at work to prepare the sites and infrastructure that will host these next World Ski Championships.
This will be a memorable event for Méribel and Courchevel, as well as for French skiing as a whole. It will provide visitors with a spectacular event in the heart of an already world-famous ski area.
Together, Méribel and Courchevel are happily looking forward to bringing you a great adventure: Courchevel Méribel 2023 !
The Roc de Fer piste became part of Olympic history at the 1992 Albertville games. With the Alpine World Cup Finals in 2015, it became a legend!
Countless French and international ski champions have left their mark on this almost 2.5 km long piste. Skiing the Roc de Fer is like playing football at the Maracana stadium – a dream!
The course used for the World Ski Championships in 2023 will follow the Roc de Fer, starting from the ridge for the downhill, and finish at La Chaudanne on the Stade de slalom.
The piste will be remodelled for the occasion: a reprofiled Stade de slalom, new cultured snow equipment, a tunnel built for better skier circulation, and World Championship-theming of the piste!
