Alphand, who won by just 34 points, became the first male French overall winner since Jean-Claude Killy in 1968.[1] After his overall victory, as well as discipline titles in both downhill (his third straight) and Super G (the only two events in which Alphand competed during the season),[1] Alphand retired from the World Cup circuit. Five-time overall World Cup champion Marc Girardelli of Luxembourg also retired during the season after suffering another knee injury during a race in December 1996.

A break in the schedule was for the 1997 World Championships, held in Sestriere, northwestern Italy, from February 3–15, 1997.
