The alpine skiing World Cup is a circuit of alpine skiing tournaments controlled by the International Ski Federation (FIS). Races are held primarily at ski resorts in the Alps in Europe, with frequent stops in Scandinavia, North America, and east Asia. The first year for the World Cup was 1967. Jean-Claude Killy of France and Nancy Greene of Canada were the champions for the first two years.

Teams attempt to gain the finest time in four disciplines: slalom, giant slalom, Super G, and downhill. The fifth event, the combined, employs the downhill and slalom. The World Cup firstly included only slalom, large slalom, and downhill races. Mixed events were included starting with the 1974–75 season, while the Super G was put for the 1982–83 season.
