 Sam hill. He also had the last fastest time down psychosis. I think it was a 15km dh track. Had a 1km up in the middle.

 If they would use the full length of someski resorts in the alps.. that´d be crazy..
for example.. the start of the WC course in leogang is actually not even half the way up to the very top of the liftstation..
And there are by far bigger descents in some other parks...
for example Chamonix.. more than 2800 meters(9200 feet) of descent from top to bottom.. insane
Though the top to bottom in whistler is pretty sick Wink

 I can barely stand up for a complete 5 minute DH segment; those must be quads of steel those riders have.
