“Courchevel Méribel 2023’s success is the fruit of meticulous preparation by the French Ski Federation and the Olympic resorts of Courchevel and Meriobel, and recognition of their ability to work together effectively to achieve a shared goal. As a result, we are confident the 2023 Alpine World Ski Championships will be a great sporting and popular success that embodies in every way the bid’s slogan: “Together for 2023,” a Courchevel Méribel 2023 statement reads, continuing,
“Hosting the 2023 Alpine World Ski Championships is an opportunity to unite an entire country around skiing, to offer the public a unique event capable of generating a passion for skiing, especially among the younger generations, and to promote France’s mountain areas and mountain resorts.”
