Who is FIS SnowKidz?
"FIS SnowKidz is the first phase of the Bring Children to the Snow campaign. It is a unique program and communications platform that enables organisers around the world to share and showcase their events to bring children to the snow. Events can occur at anytime and in any place around the world." FIS SNOWKIDZ
To reverse the general decline in youth participation in snow sports
To support and encourage involvement, together
To create a new channel to reach the younger target groups
To bring newcomers to snow whilst offering extra value to those who already participate.
FIS World Snow Day
World Snow Day is the second phase of the 'Bring Children to the Snow' campaign. World Snow Day looks beyond the FIS membership to the wider snow sports community. It seeks to motivate children aged from 4-14 by encouraging all stakeholders to celebrate all things snow around the world simultaneously. In short, World Snow Day is the biggest day on snow all year. And World Snow Day is not a one-off event but is planned to be staged annually for years to come.
