Video: Drone races Olympic Skier in Giant Slalom Competition

Drone vs. Skier, it's a match up that’s been years in the making. Thanks to exponential advancements in technology we have finally reached that fateful day in which a tiny flying robot goes toe to toe with a world class athlete. We’re more acquainted with drones for creative purposes, so racing is a first for us.

In one corner stands Victor Muffat-Jeandet, the 2018 Olympic bronze medalist from the men’s alpine combined, and in the other is a quadcopter operated by the two-time world champion drone flier, Jordan Temkin. Who will win? 

Wow… This is amazing. Even though we were expecting that the drone will be wining the race, we were again proved that man is still superior and can defeat a machine any day. But that race was so exciting to watch for.

Jackson Hole has a lot of cliffs, and Daniel Tisi takes full advantage of that fact. The young ripper won TGR's Grom Contest back in 2011 at the tender age of 12, and he's only gotten better since then. Having grown up in what is arguably the meat-hucking capital of the North American ski-scene, it's no surprise that he gravitates towards drops.
