FIS Nordic World Ski Championships in Oslo - February 23rd - March 6th 2011
 
Every year, I look forward to the royal family's appearance at the Holmenkollen Ski Jumping championships. The competition won't take place this year, though, because Holmenkollen is hosting the FIS Nordic World Ski Championships from Feb. 23 - Mar. 6. I expect the royal family to show up at the opening ceremonies, but I hope they'll also show up for several of the other events.

Prince Haakon is on the Advisory Board of Oslo 2011, the organizing committee for the championships, so at the very least, I imagine he'll be in attendance several times. He appears in Oslo 2011's promotional video, welcoming the world to Norway.

There will also be the championships in ski jumping that will take place at the Holmenkollen ski jump. I am pretty sure we'll see the family attending the competition. :flowers:
The ski jumping competitions will take place on February 26th (Men - Individual, Normal hill), February 27th (Men - Team), March 3rd (Men - Individua, Large hill --> usually the Royal attend this competition) and March 4th (Team- Large hill).
A programm with all events can be found here: Programme : : Oslo Ski-VM 2011
I can imagine we'll see the Royals (especially King Harald) during quite alot of the competitions.

Wasn't Princess Astrid supposed to be there as well? I didn't see her in any of the photos.
