VILAMOURA, PORTUGAL (May 26) - Tom Kelly, U.S. Ski and Snowboard Association Vice President of Marketing Communications, is on-site in Portugal and available for comments and followup information regarding recent news from the International Ski Federation (FIS) Congress.
News from the FIS Congress includes:
U.S. Resorts to Host 22 World Cups During 2006-2007 Season

Freestyle World Cups Return to Deer Valley, Lake Placid
Snowboard World Cup Stops at Lake Placid for Third Season

"USSA is honored to have such strong World Cup venue partners as Aspen, Beaver Creek, Deer Valley and Lake Placid," said USSA President and CEO Bill Marolt. "The FIS World Cup events are the face of our sport globally and we're proud to be able to showcase our ski and snowboard sports at such great resorts in America."
Each U.S. resort has representation at the FIS Congress. The World Cup events at U.S. resorts in the 2007 season are:
Nov. 25-26 - Aspen, Colo. (women's giant slalom, slalom)
Nov. 30-Dec. 3 - Beaver Creek, Colo. (men's super combined, downhill, GS, slalom)
Jan. 11-13 - Deer Valley, Utah (men's and women's moguls, aerials*, dual moguls*)
Jan. 18-20 - Lake Placid, N.Y. (men's and women's aerials*, moguls, aerials)
March 10-11 - Lake Placid, N.Y. (men's and women's halfpipe, snowboardcross)
* - Night event
The super combined in alpine is a relatively new event for the World Cup, moving the traditional combined - i.e., a designated downhill on one day and two runs of slalom on another - into a one-day format with one run of DH and only one run of slalom. The Beaver Creek event will be the first World Cup combined of any format to be held for men in the United States in the 41-year history of the World Cup. The women had a traditional combined at Steamboat Springs, Colo., in December 1989.
The FIS tour directors for each sport develop the various World Cup calendars together with national associations, such as USSA. Annual approval is by the respective sport committee and the FIS Council.

will discuss how and why
western resort communities are changing and what are the implications

created for addressing the multiple challenges facing Jackson Hole and
other resort communties. It
is a process unlike anything ever done here--could it be something we
Mr. Schechter is a long-time resident of Jackson Hole. He has founded
and managed several
