You’ve been challenged to the oldest and most glorious contest on snow, the Chinese downhill. Your honor is on the line, so here’s how to become a local version of Hot Dog...The Movie’s Harkin Banks.
An official Chinese DH starts at the highest point on the mountain, so find your local apex and line up with your competition. There are no rules, so call your own countdown. Then give the most solid pole push and skate of your life.
