The Alpine Skiing World Cup in Stockholm

A major international sporting event will be hosted in Stockholm next Tuesday, on 23rd of February. We are talking here about one stage of the Alpine Skiing World Cup, organized by the International Ski Federation (FIS).

The competition will take place on the slopes of the amazing Hammarbybacken, which we recommended for your winter activity in our January post about winter sports in Stockholm.
