Summer is in full swing and so are the inspections of the FIS Cross-Country World Cup venues for the 2014/15 season. 

Until now, the FIS team has visited venues that are back in the calendar after a break: Rybinsk (RUS) and La Clusaz (FRA).

“We are satisfied with the inspections so far. All Organisers we have visited are very enthusiastic and working hard to be ready for the winter. I am happy about the close cooperation we have established between FIS, the Organising Committees, FIS Marketing and the host broadcasters,“ Pierre Mignerey, FIS Cross-Country Race Director said. 

Throughout the summer, the FIS Cross-Country team will be visiting all FIS Cross-Country World Cup venues. The summer inspections will continue in August with visits in Estonia, Finland and Norway. Afterwards, the inspections will travel to the FIS Tour de Ski venues. 

“On site-summer inspections are very important for the preparation of the upcoming season. Not only can we check various aspects of the organisation but also update the Organising Committees about the latest changes and address improvements. For us it is important to stay in touch with our Organisers also during the off-season,” Sandra Spitz, Cross-Country Event Coordinator said. 

The inspection schedule will come to an end in October with the final FIS inspection of the 2015 FIS Nordic World Ski Championship venues in Falun (SWE).
