The FIS Alpine World Ski Championships 1941 were held together with the FIS Nordic World Ski Championships 1941 on 1–9 February in Cortina d’Ampezzo, Italy.

Five years later in 1946, the International Ski Federation (FIS) canceled the results because of the limited number of participants from only Axis-friendly countries during World War II. Germany and Italy won all 18 medals.
