The FIS Nordic World Ski Championships 1941 took place February 1–10, 1941 in Cortina d'Ampezzo, Italy. The previous championships of 1940 were scheduled for Norway, but were cancelled in the wake of Germany's invasion of Norway during World War II. At the 1946 meeting in Pau, France, the FIS declared this a non-event because of the limited number of competitors. Medals were awarded in this event, but not counted in the overall FIS Nordic World Ski Championships as a result.
