Are you ready?
For more than two weeks, people on a ski holiday in Are will be able to watch the best skiers in the world push themselves to the limit in the super-G, downhill, slalom and giant slalom.
There will also be the Nations Team contest to round off proceedings, an event which was first introduced at Bormio in 2005.
In total, there will be 350 competitors from 60 nations looking for medal glory, hoping no doubt to follow in the footsteps of reigning champions such as Benjamin Raich and Bode Miller.
They may even have the World Championships record of five medals in their sights, a feat achieved by Lasse Kius in 1999.
British hopes lie with Finlay Mickel in the men's competition and Chemmy Alcott in the women's section.
The opening ceremony takes place on Friday, February 2nd, but those on a ski holiday in Are will be able to watch events all the way through to February 18th.
