The 57th edition of the FIS alpine skiing World Cup season gets underway on 22-23 October with the traditional opening Giant Slalom races in Soelden, Austria, and will end in mid-March with the competition Finals in Soldeu, Andorra.

Olympic gold medallists Mikaela Shiffrin and Marco Odermatt are the defending champions ahead of a 2022/23 campaign that features 42 events for both women and men across 20 and 21 venues, respectively.

The women’s calendar includes 11 Downhills, 9 Super Gs, 10 Giant Slaloms, 11 Slaloms and 1 Parallel race. The men’s programme comprises 14 Downhills, 7 Super Gs, 10 Giant Slaloms, 10 Slaloms, and 1 Parallel event. For the third consecutive season there will be no Combined events, a race that is under review to and may not be on the Olympic programme for Milano Cortina 2026.

The World Cup will take a two-week break with the World Championships in Courchevel-Meribel, France, taking place from 6-19 February.

One of the new features of the upcoming campaign will be the speed season opener from Zermatt, Switzerland, to Cervinia, Italy: the event, the first across a border in World Cup history, includes four downhill races split between the men’s (29-30 October) and women’s tour (5-6 November).

After a 20-year absence, Kvitfjell, Norway, will be back on the women’s programme, while the German resort of Garmisch-Partenkirchen will host three men’s races (a Slalom on 4 January, and a Downhill-Giant Slalom on 28-29 January).

From this season, there will be two more North American stops in addition to the traditional events of Lake Louise and Beaver Creek as the World Cup will return to the USA resorts of Palisades Tahoe and Aspen at the start of 2023.

Here’s a guide to the things you need to know ahead of the new season.

Women’s alpine ski season 2022/23: Shiffrin chases fifth overall title

Shiffrin is looking for her fifth overall title, which will put her in second place in the all-time list of winners, only behind Austria’s Annemarie Moser-Proell with six crowns: the American is one of the four active female skiers to have won the big globe along with Switzerland’s Lara Gut-Behrami (2016), Italy’s Federica Brignone (2020) and Slovakia’s Petra Vlhova (2021).

Last season the Beijing 2022 Olympic champion in Slalom gave Shiffrin a run for her money, but this year other potential contenders include Swiss all-rounder Michelle Gisin, Italian ‘speed queen’ Sofia Goggia and Norwegian ace Raghnild Mowinckel.

Other women to watch in the battle for the small globes are Corinne Suter and Ester Ledecka (Downhill), Elena Curtoni (Super G), Lena Duerr and Katharina Liensberger (Slalom), and Tessa Worley and Sara Hector (Giant Slalom).

Men’s alpine ski season 2022/23: Odermatt looks to emulate Hirscher

Odermatt starts the new season as the man to beat after topping last year’s overall rankings with 1,639 points, almost 500 more than second-placed Aleksandr Aamodt Kilde (1,172).

The Norwegian claimed the overall title two years ago and in 2022 came back from a severe injury to take both speed globes (Downhill and Super G). Another skier to watch will be Kilde’s compatriot Henrik Kristoffersen: the 28-year-old, who last season finished in the overall top-3 for the sixth time in the last seven years, this summer started a technical collaboration with a new ski brand owned by his former rival Marcel Hirscher.

Since the Austria’s legend retired in 2019, no male skier has managed to retain the title from the previous season.

The new calendar, featuring a number of Downhills which is twice the number of Super Gs (14 vs 7), may favour pure ‘speedsters’ such as Beat Feuz, Dominik Paris, and Austria’s duo of Matthias Mayer and Vincent Kriechmayr.

In the technical events eyes will be on 2021 overall champion Alexis Pinturault, who is looking to bounce back after a disappointing season. Another name to watch is Austria’s Manuel Feller, who last year managed to find consistency in both slalom and GS by finishing second and third in the respective rankings.

In slalom, reigning Olympic champion Clement Noel is expected to continue his progress in an event that last season saw eight different winners.

Skiing rising stars

In a sport where experience is key for success, in the last couple of seasons new exciting talents have emerged.

The future looks promising for Winter Olympic powerhouse Norway: at 22 both Lucas Braathen and Atle Lie McGrath have already collected five World Cup podiums and two wins.

Alice Robinson had a season marred by several DNFs but the 20-year-old Kiwi is eager to recover the form that since 2019 has earned her three wins and 11 top tens in the top-tier circuit.

At 21 years old, Giovanni Franzoni of Italy is ready to make an impact at World Cup level after claiming the 2022 European Cup and two titles at last year’s junior World championships in Panorama, Canada.

Expectations are also high for 18-year-old Zrinka Ljutic, the reigning junior world champion in Slalom: the Croatian, who looks to follow in the footsteps of her idol Janica Kostelic, has already made her Olympic debut in Beijing and finished fifth in the last World Cup Slalom of the season in Courchevel/Meribel.

One more name to watch is 15-year-old Lara Colturi: the daughter of Italy’s Olympic champion Daniela Ceccarelli from this season represents Albania and is set to be the youngest skier to make an appearance in World Cup since Mikaela Shiffrin.

Alpine skiing — Mikaela Shiffrin’s 2022/2023 calendar revealed

The two-time Olympic champion will make her debut in Soelden in October and will be in action until the World Cup Finals at Soldeu in March. Find out what could be her key races in the upcoming season.

(Picture by 2022 Getty Images)

The International Ski Federation (FIS) Council approved the calendars for the upcoming 2022-2023 alpine skiing World Cup season on Wednesday (25 May), and four-time women’s overall winner Mikaela Shiffrin will begin her title defence on 22 October in the traditional opening giant slalom event in Soelden, Austria.

The American is set to race in front of home fans on 26-27 November in Killington, one of the four U.S. stages in the FIS calendar along with Beaver Creek, Palisades Tahoe, and Aspen, although the last three stops are only part of the men’s circuit.

Female skiers will compete in a total of 41 World Cup individual races (two less than the men) and the two-time Olympic champion is expected to feature in most of the technical events (slalom, giant slalom) as well as in some of the speed races (super G, downhill).

«My focus wasn’t really on speed this year, but then it worked out very well for these last races and that was just awesome,» tech specialist Shiffrin told Ski Racing Media as she recorded five podium finishes in the ten speed races entered during the 2021/2022 World Cup campaign.

The women’s speed season will kick off on 5 November with the first of two downhills taking place between Zermatt (Switzerland) and Cervinia (Italy), the first-ever cross-border event in World Cup history.

«Everything is on the table right now,» said her coach Mike Day on the six-time world champion’s plans of incorporating more speed races into her programme.

“It’s safe to say that I will do some downhill,” Shiffrin told TeamUSA.org after her summer training camp in Chile.

“I’m going to try to target a few more super-G races and see where downhill fits in.”

The new season calendar sees a majority of technical events (22 vs.19) in the women’s circuit and for the third straight campaign there are no combined races.

Shiffrin will also be in action at the 2023 World Championships in Courchevel-Meribel, France, from 6 to 19 February, with her season coming to a close at the World Cup Finals taking place in Soldeu, Andorra, from 13 to 19 March 2023.

The full women’s calendar for the season, and the world championships, is listed below.
