Next up is our popular Tour de Ski Contest as the legendary tour celebrates its 10th anniversary.
And finally we’re also excited to announce the grand finale, Ski Tour Canada 2015 Contest, as the iconic season-end crystal globes are awarded in Canmore, Alberta, for the first time making history for Canadian fans, the sport, and the global xc ski community around the world.
For our FIS Fantasy World Cup 2015/16 Contest please register your team of four (4) men, and four (4) women including two (2) Outlaw Skiers – one (1) male and one (1) female not in the top 15 of the FIS World Cup overall rankings.
Points will be awarded following each World Cup based on each skier’s performance and published regularly at skitrax.com so you can see how your score compares to other international players and the actual FIS standings.
