Alpine World Ski Championships 2005

The FIS Alpine World Ski Championships 2005 were held in Bormio, Italy, between January 28 and February 13, 2005.
The women's competition was held in neighboring Santa Caterina.[1]

Bormio previously hosted the FIS Alpine World Ski Championships in 1985. Other host cities for the world championships in Italy include Cortina d'Ampezzo (1932, 1941 (unofficial), and 1956 (Winter Olympics)), Val Gardena (1970), and Sestriere (1997).

In northern Italy, Bormio is a regular stop on the World Cup circuit, usually for a men's downhill in late December. The Pista Stelvio is among the longest and most challenging downhill courses in the world, with a vertical drop exceeding 1000 m (3280 ft.).

These were the last world championships to use the traditional combined (K) format (one downhill run and two slalom runs). Starting in 2007, the world championships switched to the "super-combined" (SC) format (one run each of downhill & slalom) for the combined event. First run on the World Cup circuit in 2005 at Wengen, the "super-combi" format made its debut at the Winter Olympics in 2010.
