The 2018 edition of the Winter Show took place in typical fall weather. Regardless, some 13 000 people found their way to Kungsträdgården to meet the team from Åre 2019, among other activities. A large number of visitors enjoyed trying on the Åre 2019 VR goggles with which they had a chance to race the 2019 championships slalom and super-G slopes, and enjoy Åre on a perfect winter day with bluebird skies.
– It was a lot of fun despite the nasty weather! We received great feedback from the visitors, they love to try out the World Championships slopes and it’s fun to see how virtual reality can inspire people to ski. Many of our visitors were really interested in Åre 2019, commented Patrik Svärd, Sponsor Manager at Åre 2019.
Saturday saw the first of several volunteer kick-offs take place at the Audi forum in Stockholm. The room was full as a key group of staff for the World Championships gathered in good spirits.
– The volunteer kick-off in Stockholm went really well, everyone was excited to be there and the atmosphere was great. It is really important for us to see that the volunteers are already getting so involved! It was great to meet so many of them personally, said Madelene Aalto, Volunteer Manager at Åre 2019.
Meanwhile in Östersund, Östersunds FK played Hammarby in the season’s last round of the Swedish league on Sunday. Representing Åre 2019, Jan Andersson and Hans Olsson were busy informing and inspiring the Swedish footbal fans for the Alpine World Ski Championships.
