Alpine Skiing

By Michael Schmauser

I have recently attended 2 days of Technical Delegate School at the invitation of Deutscher Ski Verband Technicial Delegate Chief Instructor Peter Krogoll. He had attended International Ski Federation (FIS) meetings in Zürich/Switzerland. The information I had learned from the TD School will help me with the upcoming World championship and Winter Deaflympics.

NEW: The first Cross-Skiing event will be held for the first time during the 2010 Winter Olympics. I am thinking forward: I would like to see this event be included in High Tatras/ Slovakia, if there are enough participants.

I would appreciate it very much if nation members could keep me informed of the skiing results from any international competitions in which your athletes participate.

I also would like to inform you of the location change of the European Deaf Alpine Skiing, Cross Country Skiing, Snowboard Championships which will take place in Seefeld/Austria from 6-15 March 2008.

I wish you all Merry Christmas and Happy Happy New Year 2008!
