Few Fan Community members celebrating World Cup return at Squaw Valley CA March 2017

The first ever Ski World Cup  Fan Community 

Our community was born from both the race skiing passion combined with the festival spirit generated by the fans themselves which exudes intense emotion which is extremely gratifying for the athletes themselves.
We are all fond of skiing and therefore we compete in the first cup in the races reserved for summer visitors organized by the ski resorts as part of convivial challenges.

 

The champions… the right stuff!
It is difficult to imagine the amount of grit required to become a ski champion. It involves risks, potential injuries, gruelling training periods, interminable punishing rehearsals. Remember one is not naturally born to be a champion but one develops into a champion through relentless obstination and dedication!
Can you Imagine the champions being launched and barrelling down at 110 klm/h on ice with a mere helmet displaying their sponsor’s logo as a futile protection!?
How can one feel not moved by the intensity of their dedication!?
Therefore, fans like ourselves are always around backing them up to the hilt!!!
Our way to support & cheer the top level athletes.

 Most athletes have private backing usually related to the area where they were born or from a member of their families but many athletes are struggling to live up to a promising career and eventually give up because low public attendance generate little interest from media.
What can be done about it?
National federations whose financing varies subject to the States involved which will be further developed in a forthcoming article. IFIS, sponsors and local organisers make it possible for the magic of the world cup to be kept alive and kicking!!!!  Fans are of paramount importance to back the teams from the public areas and to promote the development of FIS


Let’s now see how the athletes’ support can be organised.

The Fan Community is international several languages coexist but the one and only lingua franca is our passion, our friendship mixed with emotion and respect.
