« The IFSI Congress

IFSI hosts a convention every 4 years since 1969, in a ski resort of a country with a snowsports federation affiliated to IFSI.

Objectives: allow all IFSI members to share techniques, teaching and safety methods in snowsports. It is also an excellent means to discover and promote a region and a ski resort.

Around 250 to 300 persons participate in each congress and are as many ambassadors when returning home.

France has been chosen for the third time in 40 years since the beginning of these congresses to host the 2012-2013 winter convention.

The 2013 Congress will be held at the Alpe d’Huez ski resort.
