The Swiss ski resort of Crans Montana has been named as the host of the 2027 FIS Alpine World Ski Championships following the FIS council elections and award ceremony in Milan on Wednesday May 25, 2022.

The resort previously hosted the biennial competition in 1987.

Held over two weeks in February, it will see the very best men and women Alpine ski racers compete across disciplines including Downhill, Slalom, Super G and Giant Slalom.

Held in Milan, the International Ski Federation (FIS) ceremony was hosted by former British ski racer and Eurosport commentator, Nick Fellows and he was joined by FIS president Johan Eliasch.

Announcements were also made for 2026 and 2027 World Championship events in Freestyle ski and Snowboard, Ski Flying and Nordic.

Eliasch said: "We had four excellent bids to host the 2027 Alpine World Championships and it certainly was not an easy decision. Crans-Montana brought a passion to its bid that you could feel. Bringing the Alpine World Ski Championships to the heart of Alpine Skiing in 2027 will be an unbelievable opportunity."

Crans-Montana won 11 of the 18 votes against Narvik (Norway), Soldeu (Andorra) and Garmisch-Partenkirchen (Germany).
