Press Release
Oberhofen, 1st March 2017 - Following the success of World Snow Day 2017, FIS confirms that a 7th edition of World Snow Day will take place 21st January 2018.

The 2017/2018 season will be an important year as a new set of World Snow Day goals will begin. Additionally the date of World Snow Day is shortly before the 2018 Winter Olympic Games in Peyongchang, South Korea. As a result global interest in snow sports will be high.

FIS president Gian Franco Kasper said "Its has been a pleasure for FIS to connect and support the grass roots of snow sports. The next edition of World Snow Day will be important and we encourage all current and potential Organisers to create an event to give children a chance to explore, enjoy and experience snow sports"

Organisers of the 7th edition of World Snow Day can also expect all the same support features, including Event Planning materials, Organiser Care Packages and much more.

Registrations for the 7th edition of World Snow Day will open on the 1st July 2017 and remain open until the 15th December 2017. Organisers can find all the key dates for the event in the World Snow Day Event Planning Manual by clicking here.
