The first-ever world championships of assisted skiing are taking place this winter in the French ski resort of Alpe d’Huez. Otherwise known as the Augmented World Skiing Championships, the event is designed for skiers who are assisted with exoskeleton devices such as ski-mojo.
A giant slalom race and a ski trail tournament make up the competitive elements of a weekend that includes socialising and meeting like-minded skiers who all use exoskeleton devices when skiing. The founder and organiser of the event, Ophélie David, is a former member of the French Alpine Ski Team.
Entrance fee €90 per person, including entry to all races (lift pass not included), welcome drink on Friday evening, gala dinner meal and awards ceremony. Travel and accommodation must be booked independently.
Free to watch.
