It is with great sadness that FIS is reporting the death of Hannes Huter from Austria, a long time representative of the Kitzbühel Ski Club and Club 5 Organisers.
In his role with Kitzbühel, Hannes was responsible for marketing and public relations for the annual Hannenkamm races, taking care of the many VIP guests that attended the weekend of races. With Club 5, an association of 17 of the Alpine World Cup Organisers, Hannes was the long-time General Manager, who looked after much of the day-to-day activities.
But more than his official roles, Hannes was an always friendly, smiling face at the FIS meetings and around the World Cup races. He offered a warm smile, open attitude and it was clear that his passion for skiing ran deep in his veins.
Services for Hannes will be held this Friday 6th July at the Pfarrkirche Kitzbühel. FIS would like to express its deepest condolences to the friends, family and colleagues of Hannes.
