The FIS Alpine World Ski Championships are held once every two years. In a recent article by Snow Sports NZ, NZ Head of Alpine Jono Howson explains “World Champs is a stand alone-event and the person that is crowned world champion gets to claim that for two years, it is quite an honour.”

We wish Jack Adams and the team every success and look forward to following their results at this prestigious event.
