2011 Alpine Skiing World Cup

2011 World Cup Champions
Ivica Kostelić became the first man from Croatia to win the overall World Cup.

The 45th FIS Alpine Ski World Cup season began on 23 October 2010, in Sölden, Austria, and concluded on 20 March 2011, at the World Cup finals in Lenzerheide, Switzerland.[1]

Being an odd-numbered year, the biennial World Championships took place in February. The 2011 World Championships were held between 8–20 February at Garmisch Classic in Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Bavaria, Germany.

The season saw the introduction of a new event to the World Cup, the city event. The race in parallel giant slalom took place in Munich, Germany.[2]

The overall titles were won by Maria Riesch of Germany and Ivica Kostelić of Croatia; both skiers winning their first overall crowns. Kostelić secured his overall victory several races before the end of the season while Riesch and Lindsey Vonn of the United States were close together before the finals at Lenzerheide, Switzerland. Riesch had a significant lead after the World Championship but Vonn caught up and took the lead before the last slalom race. Slovenia's Tina Maze won her first slalom in that race, Riesch's fourth place compared to Vonn's thirteenth gave her a three-point advantage.[3] The cancellation of the last race – one of four to be cancelled at Lenzerheide – meant that Riesch won the title.[4]
