Due to unstable conditions in the backcountry, Red Bull Cold Rush will be postponed until March 23-26 when it will make its Revelstoke Mountain Resort debut.
With safety as the major priority, the decision was made by event organizers to delay the contest.
“Recent warming has impacted our venues in remote areas of the mountain over the last few days. Safety for athletes and delivering a premium, progressive ski contest are our ultimate goals for Red Bull Cold Rush. Unfortunately, current conditions will not allow for either.” – Scott Jewett, National Event Manager for Red Bull Canada
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 unseasonably warm temperatures have made current conditions less than ideal outside of the resort’s boundaries.
Revelstoke Mountain Resort is excited to welcome the athletes and the event to their mountain later in the season and are looking forward to an awesome event! See you in March Red Bull Cold Rush!
In the meantime, join us at Revelstoke Mountain Resort for epic skiing, amazing terrain, and the most snow in Canada! We are definitely still open (and you won’t regret experiencing the most vertical in North America)!
