The competition is scheduled for the best conditions day of the week between February 3rd & 9th. It has been NUKING in interior British Columbia this winter and the condition right now are ALL-TIME. This competitions is going to change everything. "It took nine loggers more than 7,500 hours and 243 chainsaw sharpenings to create over 80 features in the course. Now, with the work having taken place during the snow-free summer, the 2,200 vertical feet of the Scary Cherry run has been built into Rice’s dream snowboard run and is fully ready for the arrival of 18 of the world’s best snowboarders on February 3." - Red Bull Travis Rice’s SuperNatural Comp to Happen This Week | Course Description Here | Unofficial Networks

The SuperNatural competition is scheduled for the best conditions day between February 3rd & 9th.  It has been NUKING in interior British Columbia (the course is built in Nelson, B.C.) this winter and the conditions right now are ALLTIME.  This competition is going to change everything.

“It took nine loggers more than 7,500 hours and 243 chainsaw sharpenings to create over 80 features in the course. Now, with the work having taken place during the snow-free summer, the 2,200 vertical feet of the Scary Cherry run has been built into Rice’s dream snowboard run and is fully ready for the arrival of 18 of the world’s best snowboarders on February 3.” – Red Bull

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

“Inspiration for the course design came from nature, straight up, and the crazy features that I’ve seen people ride,” said Rice. “Also, some inspiration came from what they are able to do with mountain biking courses, like building stuff through the trees. There’s no limit to what is possible with a little creativity and some will.”

This very well could be the coolest, most interesting thing to happen to the snowboard/ski world.  This has the potential to be vomiting sick.  This could change the way we ride mountains.  If this is as big a success as we think it could be, we may all begin seeing these big mountain terrain parks spring up all over North America.
