A global showpiece, the World Championships take place once a year, except in Olympic years. The event features both bobsleigh and skeleton and is the highlight of the sliding calendar. This season's event was orginally scheduled for Sochi in Russia but Konigssee was named as a replacement venue in December 2016.
