World Snow Day Enjoyed the Kimchi
World Snow Day at 48th International Ski Congress
Every spring, the extended global ski family gathers to review not only the last season but also what is to come in the future. Every two years this meeting is known as the International Ski Congress. The Congress sees the major decisions on the future of snow sports being made and direction for FIS being presented. A big focus at this year’s Congress was the first World Snow Day and what is to come in the future for the Bring Children to the Snow Campaign. The 48th International Ski Federation Congress was hosted in the Kangwonland Hotel, Korea. Throughout the Congress Week, the vision of World Snow Day and plans for the coming years were reviewed with the 760 Congress participants.
FIS’s vision for World Snow Day is closely intertwined with the other part of the FIS Bring Children to the Snow campaign, the FIS SnowKidz. Congress participants had a chance to share their ideas and show what their countries is doing to provide children with a chance to explore, enjoy and experience the snow. There were many great ideas exchanged and a lot of motivation shown by all 75 National Ski Associations in attendance to create programs and events specifically for the younger generations. Over the next one and half months the team managing the Bring Children to the Snow campaign will be working hard to refine the two programs in order to release a great system which enables the public to be informed about both the Snowkidz and World Snow Day events. The system will be easy to use, extremely informative and above all fun just like the Bring Children to the Snow events.
The World Snow Day team would like to warmly thank all those who participated in the 48th International Ski Congress in Kangwonland and shared their ideas.
