that's pretty incredible. too bad disc golf has already done it.
Mike Suchocki, Willamette Pass,
Willamette Pass is best known for having one of the steepest runs in the world, "RTS", which at its steepest point is 52 degrees. It was host the 1993 Subaru U.S. Speed Skiing Championships, where a top speed of 116.56 mph (187 km/h) was achieved. 
* Summit: 6683 ft (2037 m)
* Base: 5120 ft (1561 m)
* Vertical Rise: 1563 ft (476 m)
Their vertical rise.... 1,410
still though, taking a helicopter up to play the 18th hole on a ball golf course is friggin' ridiculous! that's like paying a few grand for a few minutes. a ski lift might be slightly more practical (not to mention economical)...
