FIS launches two new websites for World Cup Fans

Last week FIS launched two new World Cup websites focused on the Audi FIS Alpine Ski World Cup and the LG Snowboard FIS World Cup.
The goal of these websites is to provide year-round service to fans of skiing and snowboarding along with delivering background information for the media. They will especially focus on the athletes offering detailed profiles, behind-the-scenes reports, blogs and lifestyle information.
The sites will also feature race and news coverage from the FIS World Cup competitions and in-depth information on the venues as well as a World Cup Wall of Fame. For Snowboarding, a community will also be incorporated allowing the fans to contribute their content.
FIS is working together with Zug, Switzerland-based Infront Sports and Media AG and its Italian subsidiary Infront Italia on this project. With support from the National Ski Associations, the ski industry and other FIS partners, FIS is convinced that these new websites will help us make great strides in promoting skiing globally.
