La Coupe du monde FIS de ski de vitesse
The FIS Speed Skiing World Cup 

The compétition will be held on one of the greatest sites on earth for speed skiing, the Chabrieres piste with an impressive 98% steepness at the top of the slope! Nearly a wallThe piste has a potencial to bring to reality this ultimate dream of the speed. The fastest skiers in the world will meet in vars – the planetary spot of the speed- from 24 to 26 january. With their 2m40 long skis, their profiled helmet ,their skin-tight racing suits, their silhouetted sticks and their boot fairings attached to their calves the competitors seem to come from another planet. Extraordinary athletes with a futuristic look : the state of war is declared between them and the air friction to gain in aerodynamism. Speed skiing is the only sport in which you can reach some peaks above 200km/h, without any motor nor pollution.This is the most natural form of competition : a steep slope, a pair of skis and a good amount of self-control.
