Half-pipe

Half-pipe skiing is the sport of riding snow skis on a half-pipe. Competitors perform tricks while going down the pipe. The current world record for highest jump in a half-pipe is held by Peter Olenick, with 24 feet 11 inches (7.59 metres). The sport is considered to be dangerous compared to other sports, and helmets are required to be worn during competitions. Half-pipe skiing has been part of the Winter X games since 2002, and has been approved to be an official sport at the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia.
