I would like to see, SkiFly Competitions again. To protect the Skier for a crash, may you can use an Air-Bubble-System, like the pilon jumper. That would be one point, to protect the Skiers. Maybe the skiers himself, can also have some ideas, for protection to realize. Also the jump-skis and the ramp can modified, to reach more feets.
