It was with great sadness heard this week that the Honourable SES President Paul Michalides has passed away.
Paul served the sport of skiing for 62 years, including 18 years as the SES President. Skiing has lost a great friend and colleague, who left a remarkable trace in developing and promoting ski sports worldwide and especially in small ski nations.
SAI wishes to extend our condolences to his family and the SES Nations.
