Red Bull Cold Rush Cancelled
March 10 2015
Due to compromised backcountry conditions, Red Bull Cold Rush has been cancelled for 2015.
With athlete safety as the major priority, the difficult decision was made by event organizers to call off the freeski event that was scheduled to be held here at Revelstoke Mountain Resort from March 23-26.
“This event requires deep powder snow to be a success,” explained Scott Jewett, Red Bull’s National Event Manager.
“Safety for athletes and delivering a premium, progressive ski contest are our ultimate goals for Red Bull Cold Rush. Unfortunately, conditions will not allow for either,”
As a world class ski event that showcases athletes in some of the most challenging natural backcountry terrain, the contest is ultimately at the mercy of nature and the current conditions at the selected venues are unfortunately not where they need to be for the event to be a success.
