November 9, 2010 (Toronto, ON) - SkiTrax Magazine is pleased once again to present our popular international FIS Fantasy World Cup 2010/11 Contest for players around the world. The Viessmann XC FIS World Cup season kick off begins in Gallivare, Sweden on Nov. 20, with five stops before the Tour de Ski in January leading up to the Oslo 2011 Nordic World Championships at the end of February.

Once again we're presenting a unique 3-in-1 Fantasy Contest package with up to $10,000 overall in prizes including our Fantasy FIS World Cup and Tour de Ski 2010/11 contests followed by our Oslo 2011 Nordic Worlds FIS Fantasy contest for exciting season-long action - the only Nordic contests of their kind worldwide.

Here's how the FIS Fantasy World Cup Contest works:

Register your team of four (4) men, and four (4) women including two (2) Outlaw Skiers - one (1) male and one (1) female not in the top 15 of the FIS World Cup overall rankings. All menus for skier selection are available at skitrax.com when you register your team.

Deadlines, Points, Prizes

The deadline to register your FIS Fantasy World Cup team, or to make any changes, is 10pm EST on November 19, the day before the Gallivare WCup. Earn bonus points along the way such as TdS Points or Olso Nordic Worlds Points - all contest rules and information are available when you register your team.

Points will be awarded following each World Cup based on each skier's performance and published regularly at skitrax.com so you can follow your team's progress all season long and see how you compare with other players and the actual FIS standings.
