Behind the Scenes: Sölden 2014
On the slopes, the World Cup season traditionally starts the last weekend of October in Soelden but off the slopes, the two days leading up to the events are the ones anyone involved to any extent in the skiing world can not afford to miss. Press conferences, documentary screenings, photo opportunities and other duties keep the athletes busy most of Thursday and Friday, making those days some of the busiest ones of the year.
In 2012, FIS and Audi embarked on a new video project called "Behind the Scenes". The idea was to create a YouTube series, which would provide fans with greater insight into what happens around the Audi FIS Ski World Cup and also follow athletes and teams in their year-round preparation.
Encouraged by last two year’s success, and 58 videos, the "Behind the Scenes" series is back, looking to revisit some of the venues while adding some new ones. Fans will be able to enjoy videos from Soelden (AUT), Levi (FIN), Val d’Isere (FRA), Courchevel (FRA), Val Gardena (ITA), Alta Badia (ITA), Munich (GER), Adelboden (SUI), Garmisch-Partenkirchen (GER), and other spectacular World Cup sites.
The series will feature one-of-a-kind interviews with numerous athletes and offer a unique glimpse of some of the most famous runs and resorts in Alpine Skiing.
