1999 U.S. Speed Ski Championships
Televised on ESPN
The best skiers in the World flock to Snowmass, Colorado to compete for $20,000 in prize money and attempt to break the North American speed record of 129 m.p.h. (set by Franz Weber in Silverton, CA in 1983/84).
The competition will feature the purest and most extreme form of racing as about 100 racers from over 14 countries with their Darth Vader style bullet shaped helmets, rubberized suits and 240cm skis will compete for the title of the U.S. National Champion and earn points toward the title of World Champion.
The event will include Aspen's Jeff Hamilton (top speed: 151 mph), the current World Champion, as he seeks his 4th World Title in 5 years. He will be up against France's Phillipe Billy, the World Record holder (151.53 mph), Austria's Harry Egger, and Japan's "Naga" Kusumi, all members of the "150 mph Club."
