TAKE SKI TOURING TO A WHOLE NEW LEVEL
The inaugural Atomic Waymaker, the ultivamte ski touring challenge, has proven a great sucess, despite the difficult weather conditions. The eight ambitous teams breathed live into a concept which is both inspiring and which celebrates the versatility of the sport.
For two days the panel of judges, comprising Head Judge and organizer Heli Putz, Hannes Arch, Matthias Haunholder, Beat Kammerlander and Andreas Ringhofer, observed every step taken by the athletes - directly on site, via live tracking using Red Bull MOBILE, using data from the Suunto navigation devices and video footage recorded by the GoPRO helmet cams. The teams' performances exceeded all exprectations, "said Hannes Arch. "All eight interpreted the terrain differently and made the most of their strengths - and that's just what we are looking for." For ach sector the jury awarded points, and right up until the end it was neck and neck between the North Americans, the Austro-Spanish team which included World Cup winner and World Championship medalis Kilian Jornet and the tenacious local heroes.
