The initial 2015 World Alpine Ski Championships Coordination Commission meetings came to a close in Beaver Creek on Friday as members of the International Ski Federation, European Broadcasting Union, Tridem Sports, U.S. Ski and Snowboard Association and Vail Valley organizers wrapped up discussions on the proposed event management structure that will help guide the preparation and planning for the Championships over the next four and a half years.

“We had great meetings,” offered Vail Valley Foundation president Ceil Folz, “and we were able to achieve all of the things we needed to, namely, developing strong relationships with our new partners and building a confidence for them in our ability to host such a prestigious and large undertaking”.

The meetings covered a great deal of ground, including major milestones, facilities, Organizing Committee structure, sports organization, media services, broadcasting and the FIS Transfer of Knowledge program between organizers. The three-day visit also featured venue and proposed facility tours in both Vail and Beaver Creek.

Major decisions on the horizon include the dates of the 2015 Championships, which should be finalized by November of this year, as well as the naming of the Organizing Committee, which is slated for early December. Organizers will continue to work closely with the EBU regarding the designation of the host broadcaster for the event.

While the initial Coordination Commission meetings have come to a close, Vail/Beaver Creek 2015 organizers will participate in the final inspection for the 2011 World Championships in Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Germany later this month, while also traveling to the FIS Fall Meetings in Zurich, Switzerland to present a status report to the Alpine Committee.

The FIS Fall Meetings will also include a World Championships Organizer's Symposium for key members of the 2011 (Garmisch), 2013 (Schladming, Austria) and 2015 organizing committees.
