The 2002 World Championship of Ski Mountaineering (French: Championnats du Monde de Ski de Montagne 2002) was the first World Championship of Ski Mountaineering sanctioned by the International Council for Ski Mountaineering Competitions (ISMC), held at Serre Chevalier in the former French province Dauphiné from January 24 to January 27, 2002. In due to the heavy snowfall all events were postponed one day[1]

The event was supported by the Fédération française de la montagne et de l’escalade (FFME). The 230 participants were from 22 nations and from three continents. Compared to the 1975 Trofeo Mezzalama, which was also held as "World Championship of Ski Mountaineering" with the classes "Civilians", "Soldiers" and "Mountain guides",[2] the ICSM competition was only for members of the civilian national squads. Participants from countries without a squad could register with the help of the national mountain organizations.

Equipment[edit]

The equipment of the participants was very different:

The start line scene set the stage, with all the techno-light skis of the Europeans

contrasted with a pair of ‘fat’ skis and then a pair of ‘tele’ skis representing Team Canada. Our race suits were Gore-Tex, not Lycra, and we had no logos. By the graciousness of some other countries being slower than us, we did not place last. The best line we heard was from the Polish team, whom we passed on the downhill at high speed saying, “You guys can sure ski down hill fast.” Which meant that we were very

slow on the uphills![3]
— team race's report of the Canadian athlete Richard Haywood, ACMG

The weight of the ultra-light skies of the European top teams was only about incl. binding. These teams also had the mentioned race suits as well as long and light Nordic skiing poles.
