Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

FIS and IOC give GB's Sarah Lewis the boot

 Poster: A snowHead
Poster: A snowHead
Ok you may not know who Sarah Lewis is but she worked for the federation since 1994 and served as its secretary general since 2000. She was fired with immediate effect, the FIS citing "loss of confidence" in the GB skier.


55 year old Lewis looking grumpy.

Lewis was an alpine ski racer and a member of the British national team from 1982 to 1988. She took part in the 1987 Ski World Championships in Crans Montana and the 1988 Winter Olympics in Calgary. She was campaigning to be the FIS president and it appears the "loss of confidence" was that she was using her positing to fund and campaign for this role. According to Swedish Television she was spending most of her time on the campaign trail and this was considered unfair to other candidates for the post.

Somewhat bizarrely the FIS has had only two presidents, both Swiss men, for almost 70 years. The current Swiss ski federation president, the 1993 downhill world champion Urs Lehmann, has declared his candidacy.

In a double whammy for Lewis the International Olympic Committee (IOC) has confirmed Sarah Lewis is no longer a member of the Beijing 2022 Coordination Commission following her departure as secretary general of the International Ski Federation (FIS)

@davidof, is there any gossip on why there was a sudden loss of confidence in her?

 Well, the person's real but it's just a made up name, see?

just that she was allegedly using her office to fund her election campaign in detriment to other candidates but maybe the FIS just want another Swiss male president?

She has announced that she is a candidate for the election for president of FIS.

An article in the Dauphiné has a link to a Twitter message. Not sure why Johan Eliasch is being supported by GB Snowsport as a candidate, he has had no contact with the grassroots of the sport.
