Audi Alpine FIS Ski World Cup Races in Hafjell: Super-G, Super Combined an Giant Slalom for women. This is the 5th time Hafjell hosts FIS Alpine World Cup races.
The 1994 Olympic Winter Games were a success for Lillehammer .The Games are behind us now, but a lot of the key persons who made it possible are still around. Both the organisers and the volunteers are eager to take on new challenges. And so are the spectators!
Hafjell is both new and old. Although the present resort at Hafjell opened in the fall of 1988, the first Downhill race was held here as early as 1939, the International Winter Games for the Universities. The main course was the same as it is now, but only slightly wider than a cart road. Since 1988, the Hafjell Alpine Centre has hosted several World Cups
