FIS honored by International Skiing History Association
FIS was recognized last week with several honors from the International Ski History Association (ISHA) at its annual meeting in Sun Valley. "100 Years of International Skiing," a 256-page book chronicling the history of organizing skiing, was honored with an Ullr Award. Meanwhile, the European Broadcasting Union's "100 Years FIS" was recognized with ISHA's Film Award.
ISHA's annual awards are presented for outstanding contributions to the historical record in media including ski history books, filmmaking, television journalism and academic articles. The awards were presented by longtime editor and skiing historian John Fry from ISHA.
"100 Years of International Skiing" was written by FIS Nordic Combined Media Coordinator Egon Theiner along with retired professor and historian John Allen from New Hampshire. It details the sport's modern history including revolutionary changes in alpine racing, cross country and jumping, and the arrival of freestyle and snowboarding.
ISHA was founded in 1991, with its awards program debuting in 1993. ISHA has a global membership of nearly 2,000 with a mission to preserve and advance the knowledge of ski history and to increase public awareness of the sport's heritage.
