In case you require a ski pass for your reporting; day tickets are available for accredited journalists at the venues. In this regard, please refer to the contact person at the venue.

Media Centre:

The Media Centre is situated in the Innsbruck Exhibition Centre, which also serves as the ICG Homebase and thus is a meeting place for all delegations, locals, and media. This creates a unique interactive atmosphere for media representatives and athletes and a relaxed and fun reporting environment.

The Media Centre is equipped with WiFi and a shared printer. Only accredited media will have access to these facilities.

Address: Ingenieur-Etzel-Straße, Innsbruck

Please note that workplaces are limited and will be allocated on a „first-come, first-served“ principle.

A Media Centre in the Olympiaworld Innsbruck will be established on the day of the Opening Ceremony (12 January 2016) in order to allow for an on-site reporting. Otherwise, there will be no dedicated Media Centres at the competition venues. Anyway, we will try to provide internet clouds as far as technically possible.
