Speed skiers look to surpass 200kph this weekend on Mont Fort

The track of Mont Fort is the scene this weekend as the daredevils of ski eschew the concept of turning.  Starting Saturday, the Speed Master will see the fastest pros on skis attempt to cross the 200kmh (= 125 mph) threshold.  That’s faster than the terminal velocity of a free-falling skydiver.  Boom!  That’s fast.

Planetski.eu has some vid from last year’s comp.  Check it here.
