Welcome to Austria.

Welcome to Seefeld in Tyrol.

The Virtus Skiing World Championships will take place in Austria for the first time in 2023.

Seefeld in Tyrol will be the home of winter sports athletes with mental disabilities for one week. The athletes will compete in four Nordic and four Alpine disciplines.

The LOC (Local Organizing Committee) of the Nordic FIS Ski World Championships 2019 in Seefeld is significantly involved in the organization and realization of the World Championships. This guarantees that the competitions will be memorable and successful for the participants.

See you in Seefeld!

Die Virtus Ski Weltmeisterschaft ist eröffnet!

Let’s look forward to successful world championships

and a festival of friendship.

“For the Austrian team, the World Championships will definitely be a highlight – and one can also hope for one or the other medal – the ÖBSV mentally handicapped ski team was one of the most successful in recent years.”

„We are honored to be the first Austrian venue to host the Virtus Ski World Championships. Both the Alpine and the Nordic sports facilities will present themselves to the athletes in their usual excellent manner.“

„Liebe Sportfreunde! Es ist mir eine Ehre als Vorsitzender des Kompetenzgremiums Mentalbehindertensport (KGM) und nun auch in der planenden und durchführenden Funktion als LOC Co Chef die erste VIRTUS Ski WM in Österreich begleiten zu dürfen. Wir alle geben unser Bestes für eine perfekt organisierte Weltmeisterschaft und freuen uns auf viele begeisterte Athletinnen und Athleten sowie Trainer, Betreuer und Fans!“

When the medals are awarded in the Super G and the Cross-Country Sprint at the Virtus Ski World Championships in six weeks' time, the Austrian squad will certainly have something to say about it.
