Interski International was founded in Arlberg (Austria) in 1951 and every 4 years organises the biggest Snowsport Congress in the world. The Interski congress exists for the specific purpose of sharing knowledge and understanding  of ski teaching methodologies and techniques among Interski’s associated nations.

In the beginning, it was made up of only alpine countries, today it is made up of 37 nations, including Great Britain, represented by BASI.
