The FIS Freestyle TV Supervisor (TVS) is responsible for monitoring the standard of TV Production and consistency from all participating venues throughout the calendar season.

Each NSA is responsible for planning and delivering competitive ski events as part of their annual commitment to the seasonal FIS calendar.

Each NSA will appoint a local organising committee to plan, build and manage the infrastructure required to deliver a major international cross country skiing competition.

The OC is expected to nominate a suitable contact for the benefit of the Host Broadcaster.

This contact will aid and assist the HB’s planning and broadcast installation at the competition venue.
