CISM Military World Winter Games

The CISM Military World Winter Games are a multisports event organised every four years, one year before the year the Winter Olympic Games are organised. It is an event that is based on the CISM and Olympic spirit, without political, religious and racial consideration nor discrimination. Furthermore it must be organised in a dignified manner. After the success of the CISM World Summer Games, CISM decided to gather all its member nations during its first Winter Military World Games in Aoste (Italia) from 20 to 25th March 2010.


One of the facts that made the 1st CISM Winter Military World Games a big success was, undoubtedly, the number of countries present at the event. During 8 days, 43 country-flags flew in the fields of the Aosta Valley – Italy, representing more than 800 athletes and demonstrating the high interest of the military athletes in winter sports. Taking into consideration that this was the first edition of the CISM Winter Military World Games, these figures were a great achievement for the CISM family. Athletes competed in several sports: Alpine Skiing, Biathlon, Cross-Country, Indoor Climbing, Short Trak and Ski Orienteering.


The 4th CISM Military World Winter Games will be held in Germany from 22nd to 27th March 2022. The Host Cities, Berchtesgaden and Ruhpolding, are located in the south of Germany. For more information please click here.
