Extreme ski race cancelled as high winds hit Scotland
Red Bull said safety concerns led to the decision to call off the Homerun event at Glencoe.
An extreme ski race due to take place this week has been cancelled because of the bad weather.
Adrenaline junkies had been expected to gather at the Glencoe Mountain Resort on Wednesday for the Red Bull Homerun.
The event, previously held in Sweden and Andorra, would have seen 300 competitors making a Le-Mans style mass sprint to grab their skis and snowboards, before clipping in for a top-to-bottom downwards dash.
However, Red Bull has been forced to cancel the meeting as high winds and rain sweep the country.
In a statement, the company said: "Unfortunately, due to the strong wind conditions here at Glencoe Mountain Resort, the decision has been made to call off the competition to ensure the safety of the competitors which is of utmost importance.
"We apologise for any inconvenience and thank you for your cooperation"
The cancellation came as two people died on Ben Nevis following an avalanche on Tuesday.
