Are the women on the same DH course as the men only shorter?

The last time they raced the Dave Murray course there where a fair number who where a little bug eyed and white faced.

Just got back from ski jumping - preliminary round. It was wonderful weather in the Callaghan. The crowd was stoked. I hopped on the bus at Whistler's Lot 5 at about 8.15 and was at the venue at about 845am. It was a 15 minute walk to the ski jump itself.

The event proper kicked off at 10am. Top 50 qualify. There's a range of airtime between the bottom guys and the top. The top skiers go so far they almost go past the HS (Holy shit?) warning line of 105m.

This guy went pretty far past the HS line and almost drove his knees through his chin

I know nothing about the gear but it looks deadly.

The jumpers don't get as high as the security blimp

The sun came out - making for a beautiful scenic day.

I managed to bug Phil Liggett (he's announcing for a UK channel but just there on a day off) for a photo. His wife had some fancy camera setup!

It took a bit longer to get back. 45 - 55 minute lineups for the bus.

Yep, though I did wish there was something they could have done to keep the lettuce crisp.
