More than a skiing championship
The 2025 World Ski Championships will be held in Trondheim, Norway, from 26 February to 9 March. This will mark the second time the city organises the World Championships in Nordic skiing disciplines; the first time was back in 1997. The events will be held at Granåsen Ski Centre. This version of the championship will represent something quite different, as it will be the first World Ski Championships where the cross-country distances will be standardised for both men and women. The distances for the races will be 10 km interval start, 20 km skiathlon (continuous pursuit), 50 km mass start and a 4 x 7.5 km relay.
The Trondheim 2025 organisation is working to market and plan the 2025 World Ski Championships. Our owners are the Norwegian Ski Federation, Sør-Trøndelag ski district and the City of Trondheim. Lots of things will be happening in a short amount of time going forward. If you need to contact us, you can do that here.
Trondheim and Trøndelag
Trondheim is the ‘big little city’ located in central Norway. The city boasts a colorful history, active cultural scene, strong sports community and NTNU – the Norwegian University of Science and Technology. They say all Norwegians are born wearing skis and the Trøndelag region is no exception. We generally get our first pair of skis when we learn how to walk, and some of us even become world champions. We’re all proud of the fact that Marit Bjørgen, Anders Bardal, Petter Northug and Johannes Høsflot Klæbo all come from Trøndelag.
We carry winter culture in our bones, and we can’t wait to share it with the rest of the world. The City of Trondheim itself is 1000 years old, and the entire Trøndelag region is filled with proud ‘trønderske’ ski traditions. At the same time, this region is at the cutting edge, being the technological capital and home to Norway’s largest university. 470,000 enthusiastic residents from Bindal to Rindal will come together to create an unparalleled celebration of skiing in Granåsen.
Back in 1997, the World Ski Championships gathered several hundred thousand people for a ski festival and all-out celebration; one which all Trønder natives of a certain age still remember and talk about with pride. The entire region joined together to create what still stands as the best World Ski Championships ever held. In 2025, the ski party is coming back to town – once again, all good forces will join in to create the best championship ever; an event that will be a beloved topic of conversation for generations to come!
Trondheim 2025 is dedicated to transparency and welcomes the public’s interest in our activities. We will go the extra mile to make sure the media gets the information it needs.
Granåsen Ski Centre
Ski jumping and Nordic Combined World Cup events are held in Granåsen every year, in addition to around 90 regional and national competitions in Nordic skiing events.
Granåsen is currently undergoing major upgrades, with the lofty objective of creating a new sports facility that will serve the day-to-day needs of the entire Trondheim community. At the same time, the arena will be upgraded into an ultra-modern sports arena. The audience will be up-close and personal with the athletes – to the point of watching sweat pearl on their foreheads.
Innovative technology, like eco-friendly snowmaking, is just one of the solutions that will improve the experience for athletes, fans and the media.
More information on the championship arena and courses will be forthcoming.
