Inspection video

The coolest snowboard or ski event just went down yesterday at Baldface Lodge cat skiing operation in Nelson, British Columbia.  Deep Powder, disgusting artificial features, backside 10 double corks,  backside 180 nose butter to cab five off of a 30-foot tall platforms, huge 360s, obnoxiously large methods were all a part of one of the most monumental days in mountain riding.

“Scotty Lago’s first method set the tone and from there every run was next level.” - Travis Rice

We are still waiting for video from the event and we can’t wait to share it with you.

THE SUPERNATURAL COURSE:

- 40+ degrees on initial pitch

- 35 degrees after initial pitch & this is where most of the wooden features are

- 300-foot wide kicker mid-way down the slope to powder landing zone

- 30 degree slope after the kicker with a ton of slopestyle terrain park features

 ”For two years, the Baldface staff has partnered with Travis and a select crew of “arborists” to sculpt the ultimate freeriding arena. With a fifty-degree pitch and select manmade obstacles peppered across the face, “Scary Cherry” provides a more than adequate piste to enable the best film pros in the game today to perform. Beyond the obstacle-laden steeps rested a 100-foot booter meticulously sculpted by renowned cutter JP Martin. The final challenge for Supernatural contestants lay in a feature-laden jib bonk zone crafted by Jamie Lynn and Mike Parillo. Heavy doesn’t even begin to describe the setup.” – pat bridges/snowboardermag.com

Building of Red Bull’s Supernatural course

Do you guys think this event is as sick as I do?  I would kill to be able to hit features like these.  Travis’ idea here was genius and I can’t wait to see features like this start popping up at mountains around the world.

      skier one would be awesome, im a snowboarder but anything like this is watchable. i figure next year there will be one for skiers and boarders, maybe even do a cross between the 2 and see who comes out on top. the future of competitions is shit like this though. im glad t.rice got the backing from red bull to do this!

    Fact is if you don’t show up for the Baker Banked Slalom, you have lost sight of whats important. Respect to T-Rice for his run saturday, but still a second slower than 37 year old Temple Cummins run friday.

    Sean White will stick to Lame-Games
