FIS was saddened to learn about the passing of Grant McDiairmaid, a long-time member of the Canadian Snowsports Association.
McDiairmaid spent many years contributing to the growth and support of snowsports in Canada and working with FIS.
As the driving force behind the Owens-Corning / Fiberglas Canada sponsorships of the Canadian Freestyle Ski Association, his vision impacted the sponsorship landscape for its creativity and success in raising the profile of the sport in Canada.
Meanwhile, as a member of the FIS PR and Mass Media Committee, he brought an informed perspective to the committee deliberations and helped FIS move forward in an ever changing communications landscape.
FIS would like to express its sincere condolences to the family and friends of Grant McDiairmaid who will be remembered for his passion and commitment to the ongoing and rapid development of Freestyle Skiing, both in Canada and within the FIS family.
