On November 25, InterSands and the International Ski Federation – FIS announced their partnership; Today December 9, the FIS announces its work in conjunction with the International Ski Instructors Association – ISIA. This shows the great commitment of the FIS to work hand in hand with organizations that are doing important work to promote winter sports and good practices in the mountains and its care.

Oberhofen, 8th December 2020

Since the inception of Bring Children to the Snow, ski and snowboard schools around the world have joined to stage events/actions to bring children to snow sports. In fact, ski and snowboard schools account for 38% of the Bring Children to the Snow Organisers making them one of the largest groups in the campaign. To enhance the progress of ski and snowboard schools, FIS will now enter into a partnership with the International Ski Instructors Association (ISIA).

ISIA is the world body for professional ski instructors. Formed in 1971, ISIA is currently comprised of 37 member nations and is the reference body for ski and snowboard instruction around the world. Together with the ISIA, the partnership will focus on the following areas:

– Communication of best practices to bring children to snow sports

– Provide current materials and develop new materials which make environmental conservation, communications of the health benefits of snow sports and safety easier for ski and snowboard schools

– Engagement of more ski and snowboard schools in the Bring Children to the Snow campaign

ISIA President Dr. Vittorio Caffi said “The official collaboration between FIS and ISIA represents a great step forward for the world of snow sports: the two organizations together can actually make a difference, promoting our sports in a responsible and effective way. Our members are looking forward to sharing experiences and working close together.”

FIS President Gian Franco Kasper added “FIS has been fortunate to have a close connection with ski and snowboard instructors around the world. This formal partnership strengthens those relationships and will create new ones. We are looking forward to working together further”.

The partnership will commence in 2020 and last for a duration of 3 years.

Although InterSands is one of its youngest partners, this shows the effort made in recent years for the development of winter sports, especially with the great challenge of promoting it in countries and / or regions where there are no accessible mountains for the practice of snowboarding and skiing.

This agreement unites InterSands as part of the family of partners of the International Ski Federation – FIS through its “Bring Children to the Snow” program.

We thought that kid's ski suits & winter gear was boring. No matter the brand all babies, toddlers & children look the same on the ski slopes. To us, that seemed silly as parents should be able to easily to spot their children in the snow. So what did we do about it? We fixed it.
