New fis-ski.com and fis-ski.com/cross-country
Just in time for the kick off of the World Cup and the Sochi 2014 Olympic season, the official FIS website and all the discipline websites have undergone a complete redesign and are now under one umbrella.
All the key information is still available on this new site, along with many additional features that the skiing and snowboarding family are sure to enjoy.
The following is a quick users’ guide for those visiting the new website for the first time to help you find your favorite features quickly and easily.
Blue navigation panel for discipline sites
Along the blue navigation panel on the top of the page is access to all of the FIS discipline websites: www.fisalpine.com, www.fiscrosscountry.com, www.fisfreestyle.com, www.fissnowboard.com, www.fisnordiccombined.com and www.fisskijumping.com.
Each of these portals takes users directly to the latest news, most recent videos, photo galleries and a calendar of upcoming events. In addition, all of the results and data for each discipline can be found by clicking on the calendar and results tab in the blue navigation panel. The athlete bios are also found in the blue navigation panel along with specific information about each discipline, such as media information and rules, under the heading ‘More’.
One of the most important areas of fis-ski.com is the database. By clicking on Competitions in the top right navigation, you will access the complete FIS database of results, statistics and other information. The new lay-out will help you access the facts and figures easily by discipline.
When you move the mouse over the chosen discipline, you can click on the type of information you want to access (World Cup Calendar, Results, Biographies, Statistics, etc.)
Once being in the database you want to see, you can use the filters as in the previous version of the website.
For those interested in FIS’ general activities, please visit the Inside FIS section. There, users can find background information and details about the organisation, a document library with rules and regulations for all areas of FIS, anti-doping information and communications and marketing details.
For the latest starting times, hover over “Document Library” and click on Marketing. In the very right box called “Latest Documents” you’ll find the Starting times.

Users that want the latest FIS Cross-Country news delivered directly to their email inbox can sign up for the FIS Cross-Country Newsletter in the News and Multimedia section. It is also under this section users can search the news archives and check out the latest photos and videos across all disciplines.
