Latest S3V Update – 3 Years to the Skiing World Championships & Night Skiing on Verdons this Wednesday
It’s 3 Years until the Alpine Skiing World Championships are held in Courchevel and Méribel from the 6th to 19th February 2023 (that’s right, smack in the middle of Half Term – so book early for 2023!).
The impact on skiing should be minimal with just the Roc de Fer piste in Méribel and the Bouc Blanc, Murettes and Jockeys pistes closed in La Tania and Le Praz areas. Competitors, journalists, support teams , sponsors etc are expected to take up 4,000 beds (around 15% of capacity – but bare in mind it’s half term so resorts are full in any case).
The World Championships are very prestigious for the resorts and with over 1,000 hours of broadcasting over 15 days and a potential TV audience of 600 million with over 1800 journalists covering the events there is incredible media exposure.
Free access to watch all the competitions along with free shows and entertainment plus additional free transport is promised (maybe better than the current bus service of every 1 hour and twenty minutes from La Tania!).
