Altitude Escaping

Altitude Escapers in the Winter Olympucs 2018

Altitude Escaping is a combination between wingsuiting and backcountry skiing. For the first half, wingsuiters fly through the air and have to pass through certain check points. Each wingsuiter has to land in a specific area and hand off a ring to a skier. Next the skier goes down a mountain on a designated path. The skier who skis into the finish line with the best time wins.

Rules:

Each wingsuiter/flyer must follow a designated path. Off course flying/skiing for more than 5 seconds will result in a disqualification. For every second off course that time will be double and added to final time. Interfering with other racers or starting early will result in a disqualification.

Skiers will have 5 seconds off of course skiing at one time and if over they are disqualified. All of the time off course will be doubled and added to final time at the end of the race.

Why should Altitude escaping be in the Olympics?

Snow skiing is already one of the most popular events in the Winter Olympics. People will love backcountry skiing even more alongside with another heart racing sport watched by thousands of people called wingsuiting. Why not have both of these combined? This fast paced, dangerous, exciting, and adrenaline rushing event will attract many more viewers to the next Winter Olympics.
