Today FIS turns 100 years old and has launched a campaign to mark its centennial, celebrating all those who have contributed to the success of the federation and the snow sports community.

One hundred years ago, a small group of delegates gathered for the inaugural meeting of FIS, taking the first step in an extraordinary journey. Since then, great strides have been made, building a federation that represents 13 disciplines, embraces 140 member associations, supports thousands of athletes and their support teams, and organizes more than 7,000 events a year. It was a journey marked by excitement, emotion, ambition and, most importantly, a shared love of snow sports.

President Johan Eliasch said, “It has been an extraordinary century for FIS-a century that has seen the complete transformation of skiing, the adoption of snowboarding, the explosion of exciting new disciplines, and the growth of snow sports around the world. Although it is difficult to summarize this journey, the common thread is passion, love and commitment. Whether you look at the work of those who run FIS, or the athletes, volunteers or fans, there is a passionate desire to grow and share our sports, and it is to that passion that we will pay tribute this year. This is not just a celebration of FIS, but of the entire winter sports movement, its people and supporters.”
