FIS is pleased to announce the complete re-launch of its web site at www.fis-ski.com.

The entirely revamped web site provides a one-stop-shop, value-added experience for the professional users as well as fans of skiing and snowboarding. It brings together the FIS official results, data and live timing / scoring services at www.fis-ski.com with the rich editorial coverage offered by the different FIS discipline web sites at www.fisalpine.com, www.fiscrosscountry.com, www.fisskijumping.com, www.fisnordiccombined.com, www.fisfreestyle.com and www.fissnowboard.com.

“The launch of a new FIS web site was long overdue. This is an important step forward to better present and promote the sport of skiing while enhancing the services to our main stakeholder groups from the membership, our partners, the global media as well as the fans," said FIS President Gian Franco Kasper.

The new site features a user-friendly layout that is responsive to different devices. Great emphasis has been placed on the ability to share various types of content, such as images and video as well as content created for FIS’s various digital channels. One of the main features of the new face of FIS is a future-oriented infrastructure designed to keep apace with technological development and provide enhanced features and second screen offers.

The site was developed in partnership with deltatre, a Torino-based specialist in providing digital media, broadcast and backend services for the sports industry that works with the world’s most important sports federations. It is part of FIS’s digital vision, which aims for FIS to be considered as the main online authority  and the leading source of digital content on its disciplines by 2018.

Carlo Lisa, Director of Sales and Business Development at deltatre: “We have been working with the International Ski Federation in the past and we are thrilled to start a new challenging project with them. We are proud to support FIS promote their disciplines once again and happy to allow fans worldwide to experience their favourite winter sports through our multiplatform interactive solutions”.
