Update World Championships and World Masters, On-Snow 2025 Norway – new date

Update World Championships and World Masters, On-Snow 2025 Norway – new date


IFSS Council voted in favor of the request from NHF Norwegian Sleddog Federation to move the date of 2025 WCh/WM On-Snow with four (4) days to 09.02.25 - 15.02.25.


Official statement from NHF Norwegian Sleddog Federation:

The rationale is:

Economy and environment.

- A change of dates for the event will contribute to World Championship 2025 having reduced expenses and thus a more solid economy by being able to coordinate some practical arrangements and various facilities and arenas with events that take place immediately after the World Championship 2025. This will also give the event a boost in terms of environmental considerations and sustainability.

- The snow conditions will be somewhat safer.

- The accommodation capacity at Røros is better during this period, which will be important both for participants and the public.

Flourinated Ski Wax update

Dear Member federations,


In 2021 IFSS decided to follow FIS regarding fluor wax ban and the information was sent out via a Newsletter at the end of November with the following text:


Fluorinated Ski Wax

IFSS Council has decided to follow the recommendations from FIS International Ski Federation when it comes to a ban of fluorinated ski waxes. Fluorinated ski waxes have been shown scientifically to have a negative environmental and health impact. IFSS Council will follow the development in FIS and take further decisions accordingly. 
The following decision made by FIS prohibits the use of any products containing C8 fluorocarbons/PFOA. More information: 
https://www.fis-ski.com/en/international-ski-federation/news-multimedia/news/update-on-fis-fluorinated-ski-wax-ban IFSS Council encourages all Member federations to spread the word to their clubs and athletes to discourage the use of fluorine waxes.

For the season 2023/2024 FIS has made rules how to perform the equipment control of skis according to the fluor wax ban.

 At the moment IFSS have no rules that prescribe how IFSS should handle this topic.

IFSS recommend all athletes to follow the FIS fluor ban for the 2023/2024 season.


Today IFSS has no possibility to carry out controls at the competitions that are sanctioned by IFSS (2023/2024 season the World Cup competitions) but encourage all Member federations to perform controls if they have the possibility.


IFSS will present a set of rules how to proceed and how to handle the fluor wax ban at the General Assembly in May 2024.


Yours sincerely
Ninni Hjortvall
