Utdrag ur det Internationella Skidalpinistförbundets (ISMF) pressmeddelande:
It’s with great pleasure and satisfaction that I’m writing to inform you that the Executive Board of the International Olympic Committee decided on 10th April to grant recognition to the ISMF, as an Olympic Federation for a provisional period of two years. […] The positive result we have all reached is of course the first step of many, on a road we all need to walk along together, towards hopefully achieving ski mountaineering as a fully recognized official sport in the Olympic Games. As you can imagine this has taken a lot of hard work and I’d like to thank all those, every single person, who has participated in this and given support to the ISMF in order to reach this objective.
