-3 teams of 6 heavy hitting snowboarders.
-18-days of course building from 2 years of planning.
-5 days of filming to stack 10 banger clips per team.
-1 winning team determined by Travis Rice.
Really cool format for a snowboard contest. Lots of latitude with course setup with snowcats at the ready to riff on features to get the best performances from the teams and none other than the man himself Travis Rice to review the footage and determine the winner. This is Red Bull Recharge:
“The heaviest names in snowboarding are uniting for Red Bull Recharged, a team-based content battle at Mammoth Mountain May 14-17.
Like anything that evolves, stagnancy stalls progression. There is a constant need for change, be it in our culture or ideology, in order to progress and move forward. As it relates to modern day snowboarding, some would say that exists in the form of standardized contests that don’t give riders a voice. Enter Red Bull Recharged, a gathering that’s set to spark change to the status quo.
From the minds of Ben Ferguson and Mark McMorris, Red Bull Recharged emphasizes board control while empowering snowboarders to have a say in what and how they ride.”
