The Vertical Up is divided into two classes: speed and zaino. In the zaino class fun and happiness are in first position. Every sporty person can face the path with his favourite speed and with free choice of material. Only obligation: bring a rucksack with you to the arrival. Time measuring is in an alphabetic order. The winner is who gets closer to the average time of the other participants.
The speed class is the discipline of Vertical Up. In this case athletes will have to complete the original track of the Ski World Cup vertically and as quick as possible, always with a free choice of materials.
Everything is allow until the athlete uses his own power as a motor.
