FIS Alpine World Ski Championships
The FIS Alpine World Ski Championships 2007 were the 39th FIS Alpine World Ski Championships, held 2–18 February in Åre, Sweden. Åre previously hosted the world championships in 1954, and often hosts late season World Cup events.
The FIS awarded the 2007 event in 2002; other finalists were Lillehammer, Norway, and Val-d'Isère, France, which was later selected to host the 2009 championships.
These were the first world championships to use the "super-combined" format (one run each of downhill and slalom) for the combined event. First run on the World Cup circuit in 2005 at Wengen, the "super-combi" format (SC) made its debut at the Winter Olympics in 2010. The traditional combined format (K) consists of one downhill run and two slalom runs.

This competition was part of the World Championships for the second time. Six athletes from each country, including at least two men and two women, compete in a total of four super-G and four slalom runs. Each country sends one athlete into each run, alternating between men and women. The placings of all eight competitions are added, and the country with the lowest number wins. If an athlete doesn't finish the run, gets disqualified or scores a time worse than 108% of the winning time, an extra penalty is incurred. If an athlete doesn't start, an even greater penalty is incurred.
60 nations participated: (number of athletes in parentheses)
