The German Ski Federation announced that as of now Ski Freestyle won't be run under the roof of the DSV-Leistungssport GmbH (High Performance Sport) anymore but will be – analogous to Telemark – operated under the name of the DSV-Sportentwicklung (Sport Development).

The supervisory board came to this decision due to the financial circumstances.

According to a press release, DSV currently has no chance to finance the discipline with its own resources but has to run it with the help of public funds.

A personal support of various athletes, however, could still be possible but depends on a pending policy decision of the Federal Ministry of the Interior.
