2012 World Cup Champions

Marcel Hirscher won his first overall title.
Lindsey Vonn became only the second female to win at least four overall World Cup titles, after Annemarie Moser-Pröll.

The 46th FIS Alpine Ski World Cup season began on 22 October 2011, in Sölden, Austria, and concluded on 18 March 2012, at the World Cup finals in Schladming, Austria.[1][2]

Two pre-Olympic races took place at Rosa Khutor, the alpine venue for the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi. Two city events, first held as a part of World Cup in the 2011 season, were scheduled for Munich and Moscow,[1][2] but the Munich event was cancelled due to warm temperatures.[3]

Lindsey Vonn won her fourth overall women's title in five years, clinching it with a giant slalom win on 9 March at Åre, Sweden.[4] Vonn's title put her second on the all-time list behind Annemarie Moser-Pröll's tally of six titles.[5] The men's overall title went to the final event at Schladming, where Austria's Marcel Hirscher prevailed over Switzerland's Beat Feuz.[6]
