The ISMF World Cup consists of a series of races held throughout the winter season, usually from December to April. These races take place in some of the most challenging and beautiful mountain ranges in the world, including the European Alps, the Rocky Mountains in North America, and the Andes in South America.

The World Cup races are held in a variety of formats, including mixed relay, vertical races, sprint races, and individual and team long distance races. In a vertical race, skiers must ascend and descend a designated course as quickly as possible, while in a sprint race, skiers must complete a shorter course as quickly as possible. Individual and team long distance races are longer races that require skiers to navigate through a series of checkpoints over a set course.

The World Cup points system is used to determine the overall winner of the World Cup, with points being awarded to the top finishers in each race. The skier with the most points at the end of the season is crowned the World Cup champion.

In addition to the World Cup, the ISMF also organizes the Ski Mountaineering World Championships, a biennial event that brings together the top ski mountaineers from around the world to compete for the title of World Champion.
