Results

Since the beginning the World Heli Challenge has celebrated strong, fluid freeriding skills in the backcountry and a healthy respect for the mountain environment.

Over the years the format and the judging has adapted and changed but with a commitment to rewarding combined freestyle and extreme skills at the heart of the event. Overall winners score their places by high scores on both the Freestyle and the Extreme Days.

The WHC has been a trailblazer in pioneering improved scoring and judging in the free ride world in recent years using long-lens angles, filming athletes’ lines and posting them to a panel of international judges to review runs in detail rather than attempting to score from a partial view in real-time.

Most recently the WHC took on the innovative format of an online “Call Up” via video entry in 2014.  Embracing the growing influence of filming and photography in the event the winning team was the one who produced the best overall 5-minute edit, incorporating both freestyle and extreme heli-accessed terrain in their short film.

The honour roll for the World Heli Challenge is an inspiring ‘Who’s Who’ of freeriding and we thank everyone who’s been a part of it.  Over the years we’ve lost some records and have gaps to fill.

Please help us to do this as we celebrate the 21st anniversary of the event in 2015 by emailing info [at] worldhelichallenge [dot] com
