How about an event that looks something like this.

Top of mountain downhill into GS course into a free style carve section into bumps and finish off with some Slalom.

Points for speed and style.

Any thoughts?

...with the "snow" alternating unpredictably between hideous bulletproof ice and knee-snapping deathcrust...

I can just see it now, the winner of the gold medal in the 1500km tour is..... It could start just after the opening ceramony and finish on the last day.

Results could be based on overall times with deductions for things like
- not carrying all poop out.
- pour campsite choice.
- not carrying everything on Shreks list.
- getting hit by avalanches.

Time could be gained by
- a high level of stench being recorded on the officail Olympic smellometer.
- carrying the stuff on Shreks list x2.
- wearing multi coloured thermals.

AT people could even compete, at least the first time. They would soon realize that they are too slow.

Methinks there will not be enough in your fridge for a whole event, maybe just your own participation.

Should the boat race be at the start, in the middle or while skiing (thinking back to the Bisphop movie with openning a bottle with the binding while skiing) or just befor the finish line?
