Ski racing runs deeps in Aspen Snowmass’ history and the FIS Ski World Cup races have remained a fundamental event throughout the years as the World’s best ski racers come from all corners of the globe to compete on the technical and steep faces of Aspen Mountain. From 1939 when the first sanctioned races took place at Aspen to this year’s 2015 Audi FIS Ski World Cup at the Nature Valley Aspen Winternational Aspen the surrounding community has played host to the ski racing world stage for many years. Today, Aspen Snowmass not only supports up-and-coming ski racing athletes and hosts multiple ski races throughout the season, but the town and community have also been awarded the 2017 Audi FIS World Cup finals continuing the long-standing tradition of being a hub for ski racing. The Finals will be the first outside Europe since 1997 and the return of men’s World Cup in Aspen for first time since 2001.
