FIS, together with the AIJS and the Organising Committee in Soelden (AUT), is pleased to again invite all interested media to the traditional FIS Forum Alpinum on the eve of the start of the 2017/18 Audi FIS Ski World Cup opening races. It will also be the official kick off to the Olympic season with the PyeongChang 2018 Games just over 100 days away.
The Forum has become an event that provides an in-depth preview of the upcoming season. FIS President Gian Franco Kasper will take part in a question and answer session followed by information from the FIS Race Directors Atle Skaardal and Markus Waldner, who will discuss activities and innovations for the upcoming season.
2016/17 overall World Cup winners Marcel Hirscher and Mikeala Shiffrin are also scheduled to take part in a session looking ahead to the race for the crystal globe this season.
The Forum will take place on Friday, 27th October 2017 beginning at 13:30 CET at the Freizeit Arena in Soelden.
