Summer is Over Let's Enjoy Skiing!!! (1)

In less than two weeks (25-26 October) the 2014-2015 Audi FIS Ski World Cup season is due to start with the opening race in Sölden (Tirol, Austria), but for those competing in Sölden, the new season has started as soon as the past one wrapped up in March at the Finals in Lenzerheide (SUI).

Skiing might be an individual sport, but behind every athlete there is a support team which takes care of all the details which allow him or her to perform at their best. Among the team, there is one person with whom athletes often develop a special bond - the guy responsible for making their skis fast, their ski technician.

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.
