13th FAI World Para Ski Championships, Gosau, Austria - Pre-event build up

The quiet Austrian ski resort of Gosau in upper Austria is counting down the days until they are descended on by over 100 competitors from 18 different nations, including those not normally associated with Skiing - Australia, South Africa, the Netherlands and the United Kingdom. The largest delegation is from Russia.

This year the event will be filmed by Flying Aces for an Airsports TV production. I will be there reporting daily, with pictures and videos and the offical results on this Web Site. The organisers web site is www.paraski2011.at.
