Remember the Cold Rush from last year? Sean Petit throwing 60-foot dropping 360s? It was sick and it’s gonna happen all over again this March at Silverton Mountain in Colorado.
Big Mountain Venue: North face of Storm Peak.
Cliff Venue: Zone 7 (same as last year) with its plethora of 60+ foot cliffs
Slopestyle Venue: Mandatory Air (top of the Silverton chair)
“The skiers’ right line consists of a step-down over a cliff, followed by a true table-style jump measuring 60 feet to the knuckle but can be sent as far as 100 feet, and finishing up with a 70-foot step-down. The left line begins with a 20-foot long custom rail feature, followed by a 50-foot step-down over a cornice, and ends with a hip jump that can be aired out anywhere between 20-80 feet.” – Red Bull
“Since the event is taking place at Silverton Mountain again, I needed to make sure the event was unique in some way. We don’t build any features on-slope for the Big Mountain or Cliffs events, so the Slopestyle discipline is the one venue I could switch up this year. I want to make the course bigger and better, so we’re playing off the local mining heritage and building a custom rail feature, adding some jumps, and creating two distinct lines with three features each.” – Pep Fujas, coarse designer and competitor
