Get Hooked on Augmented Skiing

In recent years, skiing assistance systems such as SKIING EXOSKELETONS appeared on the slopes. These devices, which make it possible to ski longer, harder, better are considered as a mechanical doping and are therefore prohibited in official competition - to the great displeasure of all Exoskeleton Skiers who still enjoy the adrenaline rush that comes with racing.

The number of skiers using an exoskeleton (augmented skiers) is constantly increasing all over the world. In order to respond to the desire of these early adopters to measure themselves against each other, the idea was born to initiate the 1st AUGMENTED SKIING OPEN WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS.

 

The ominous title of this event should not frighten those who have never skied around gates or in a slalom. The organizers wish to show the sporting potential of using this type of equipment (to fight prejudices), but the emphasis will also be placed on safety, prevention, endurance, pleasure and intergenerationality.

A WORLD FIRST

You were already early adopters with your exoskeleton: extend the experience !

FOR EVERYONE

You should be a good skier but you do not have to be a champion. The proposed rules give everyone the opportunity to get a good ranking for this first event

AN EXCEPTIONAL COACH
