A six-member FIS delegation visited PistenBully on 26th July. We exchanged views on future issues with those responsible for their respective discipline. It soon became clear in the conversations that the FIS and PistenBully are pursuing many common goals. One particular area of attention was the FIS Clinic in China and therefore also the PRO ACADEMY along with the use of SNOWsat in ski and boarder cross. Another important issue was the different activities of the FIS and PistenBully which are designed to attract more children to the ski slopes. Thereby, a range of projects were discussed and the first steps taken in that direction. We would like to thank the FIS colleagues for the trust-based and constructive exchange of views and ideas.
