While Vail and Beaver Creek's June 3 victory in the race to host the 2015 FIS World Alpine Ski Championships is still a fresh memory, the actual road to 2015 begins September 8-10 as key members of the International Ski Federation (FIS), European Broadcasting Union (EBU) and Tridem Sports pay their initial visit to the Vail Valley for the opening World Championships Coordination Commission meeting.

FIS, EBU and Tridem Sports officials are meeting with the Vail Valley Foundation at Vail and Beaver Creek through Sept. 10.

“While we are still four and a half years out from the Championships,” explained Vail Valley Foundation president Ceil Folz, “the Coordination Commission meetings are extremely important as they will establish the groundwork for how we work with our FIS, EBU and Tridem Sports partners to ensure that the 2015 World Championships are the best they can possibly be.”

Representing the FIS on the visit will be Secretary General Sarah Lewis, Communications Manager Riikka Rakic and Event and Sponsor Manager Marcel Looze. The EBU will be represented by Ingolfur Hannesson, head of Winter and Indoor Sports, along with Christian Pirzer, president of Tridem Sports.

The three-day Coordination Commission gathering will include tours of proposed venues along with meetings to discuss a wide range of topics relating to the planning and preparations for the 2015 World Championships.

Vail and Beaver Creek will play host to annual visits from the Coordination Commission, while also sending delegations to additional events and meetings for reporting and study purposes.
