10 facts about the Audi FIS Ski Wordlcup finals 2024

A ski festival of superlatives at the end of the Alpine Ski World Cup season awaits you when the world's elite athletes will be competing for the final points.

Fact #1: 3 locations, 1 ski resort = easy to reach

The Audi FIS Ski Worldcup Finals 2024 will take place in the Skicircus Saalbach Hinterglemm Leogang Fieberbrunn - more precisely on the slope of the Zwölferkogel in Hinterglemm. As a spectator, you can travel to the races on skis or snowboard via the pistes and enjoy the freedom of not having to use a car or bus on race days. To ensure that you arrive on time for the start of the races, the opening times of the cable cars have been adjusted accordingly. If you are travelling with skis or snowboard, ski depots are available in the bottom station of the 12er KOGEL calbe car. If you prefer to come to Glemmtal without skis, we recommend travelling with the free busshuttle service, as there are only limited parking spaces available.

Fact #6: 4 disciplines, 2 courses, 1 slope

A total of four disciplines will be carried out on the Ulli-Maier and Schneekristall courses, offering fans a variety of competitions with the same finish area. 


Fact #7: Not just 1, but 2 weekends

In order to be able to realise the event on one and the same slope, the Audi FIS Ski Worldcup Final 2024 will be held on two consecutive weekends instead of just one for the first time. The race programme will be divided into a technical weekend with the slalom and giant slalom competitions and a speed weekend with the women's and men's super-G and downhill.   


Fact #8: The elite of ski racing will be there

Traditionally, only the 25 best athletes in each discipline and Worldcup participants with more than 500 points in the overall standings are eligible to compete in the Audi FIS Ski Worldcup Finals. In addition, the reigning Junior World Champions will also be able to present themselves together with the top class of ski racing.

The Audi FIS Alpine Worldcup Finals 2024 serves as the grand rehearsal for the upcoming World Ski Championships in Saalbach, which will take place on the same slope from 4 - 16 February 2025. This provides the athletes with the opportunity to test the courses under race conditions, while the organising committee can gather valuable insights to optimise the mobility concept for the FIS Alpine World Ski Championships 2025.

Before the Worldcup Finals, the downhill skiers are taking a break from racing, while the men's and women's technical disciplines each have one more race to go before the entire elite of alpine ski racing meets in Saalbach Hinterglemm from 16 - 24 March for the season finale.

And beyond the slopes and racing action?
