Welcome to the new www.fis-ski.com!
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. It is important for us to make sure the new website meets your expectations, so please do not hesitate to provide us your feedback by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
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’.
SNOWBOARD AND FREESTYLE DISCIPLINE SITES
For Snowboarding and Freestyle Skiing, the different events now have their own home pages in order to highlight the unique characteristics of each. For Freestyle Skiing, there are homepages for Moguls & Aerials, Halfpipe/Slopestyle and Ski Cross. For Snowboarding, Halfpipe/Slopestyle/Big Air, Parallel and Snowboard Cross each have their own sections.
Although the main homepage features easy access to next live events, the discipline websites will still be the place to go for detailed results and start lists. In addition, photo galleries will be uploaded following races and as a new feature, competition highlight clips will be posted 4-6 hours after each event. All videos can be viewed on the discipline page or by visiting the FIS YouTube channels of the disciplines.
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.
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.
Users that want the latest FIS-related news delivered directly to their email inbox can sign up for Newsflash 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.
SOCIAL MEDIA CHANNELS
The FIS Social link in the top right corner provides easy access to all the different FIS Social Media channels.
We hope you enjoy the new official FIS website. Happy surfing!
