Monday, 4th February will see the official opening of the FIS Alpine World Ski Championships 2019 in Åre with a ceremony in the Åre park located between Åre Torg (Åre Town Square) and Åre Station. The park will be transformed into an open-air stage – Medals Plaza – where the Championships visitors will be treated to the award ceremonies and a series of concerts in the course of the next two weeks.

 The opening ceremony of the winter’s largest sports event will fuse dance and music with the presentation of the FIS flag, an opening speech and various alpine super stars on the stage.  

One of the highlights of the ceremony will undoubtedly be the final act, presenting 1000 years of music beginning with Åre’s early history and featuring a number of local artists such as folk-rock band Hoven Droven. It will be a journey through centuries where the public will enjoy how music has changed from then until now. As the icing on the cake, or grand finale of the musical voyage, the evening will conclude with a live act by one of Sweden’s best-known artists and an Åre resident, rapper Petter. 

The official World Championships song will be presented, for the first time live, by the legendary pop group Teddybears together with Åre’s very own, up-and-coming star Rakel.

Roberto Vacchi, a well-known TV and sport commentator, will serve as the evening’s host and Master of Ceremonies. He will be joined on the stage by FIS President Gian Franco Kasper, the queen of Åre 2007 (with five medals) and some of today’s biggest alpine stars.

The official FIS flag will be presented by the organizers of St Moritz 2017, the previous World Ski Championships, and all the 76 participating nations will be welcomed by a parade of flags carried by children from the local Åre ski club. 

Åre 2019 aims to ”Inspire the World to Ski” and welcomes all the athletes, media representatives, partners, visitors and the local community to Åre Park for the Official Opening of the FIS Alpine World Ski Championships 2019!

Where life can be lived - reflections of a volonteer19.2.2019 09:34:46Pressmeddelande

Yet another Alpine World Championship in Åre has come to an end. The third through the years. Skiers, visitors and volunteers have lived and breathed the World Championships for weeks. The organization has done the same for years. Beyond all the races that have been raced, the medals that have been awarded, something else has taken place. Perhaps the thoughts have been thought before, maybe they have been awaken when being here. Thoughts of the real meaning of life, or rather, thoughts of what kind of life we want to live. Thoughts of where our children should grow up, of where our everyday lives should take place. Where life should be lived.
