Red Bull announces big mountain ski competition for Revelstoke

Red Bull Cold Rush to be held in Revelstoke from Feb 3–6, 2015.

Months after losing the Freeride World Tour, a major big mountain ski competition is returning to Revelstoke.

The Red Bull Cold Rush will be held at Revelstoke Mountain Resort from Feb. 3–6, 2015, the energy drink and media company announced this morning.

The Cold Rush will pit 15 men and five women in a three-day competition for a $36,000 in prizes.

The event is returning after a two-year hiatus, with a new format that will include on-mountain features and a greater focus on alpine touring.

The Cold Rush has been held since 2007, starting at Red Mountain in Rossland, B.C. It has also been held in Retallack, B.C., and Silverton, Colorado. The event was not held in 2013 and 2014.

This year’s competition will focus on backcountry slopestyle, big mountain skiing and alpine touring, with the big prize going to the most well rounded skier. They will be judged by their peers based on style, speed and technique.

RMR hosted the Freeride World Tour from 2010 to 2014 but last winter’s event had to be cancelled due to high avalanche conditions. The resort was left off the tour’s schedule for this winter. The Cold Rush fills the void left by the departure by the FWT.
