General Assembly of the French Ski Federation

The General Assembly of the French Ski Federation was held in Annecy, on Friday 11 June, in a small committee with the members of the Steering Committee, a number of delegates reduced to the strict minimum as well as the presidents of the National Commissions.

The Assembly was broadcasted via live streaming for and is available in replay on FFS TV , allowing as many people as possible to attend.

The General Assembly validated the implementation of the FFS revival plan, with a budget. of nearly one million euros, aimed at encouraging the resumption of snowsports activities in affiliated clubs on all levels.

This plan notably includes a system directly linked to the renewal of licenses. Members holding a 2020-2021 license will benefit from a reduction when renewing their license for the 2021-2022 season. With variations from 20 to 40% depending on the type of license.

In parallel with the FFS revival plan, an adapted communication campaign will be deployed to support the affiliated clubs in the resumption of their activities. 

If the 2020-2021 season has had a definite impact on all federal structures, the FFS aims to ensure a dynamic resumption of club activities, at the service of licensees.
