Dates announced for 21st FIPS Congress – Russia

// Post updated March 2017 //


The FIPS Executive and the Rosa Khutor organising committee met last week, and have announced the dates for the XXI (21st) FIPS Congress in 2018.

Dates: 20-27 January, 2018

Now you might be thinking that Russia is pretty cold in January, but don’t worry, you won’t freeze because Rosa Khutor is in the south of Russia, near the Black Sea and the Abkhazian Border.

This means the climate is not your typical Siberian freeze in mid January with temperatures fluctuating around 0C / 33F with plentiful snowfall.

Sochi Airport is 1 hours drive away in good conditions, so the resort is very accessible.

More details to come.
