Wipeout Wiki


The Ski Lift is the second obstacle in the Winter Wipeout season. It’s a similar obstacle to the Sweeper.

The twelve contestants start together on floating platforms 10 feet above the icy water as they move in a circular motion. They must hold onto the handlebars and use them to lift themselves up and over the frozen sweeper arms to avoid being knocked into the icy water. If it wasn’t difficult enough, the rotating sweeper arms will rise higher and higher. The last six contestants standing move on to the next round, and the last person standing wins a $1,000 bonus.
