For immediate release:
VANCOUVER, BC – January 28, 2015 – Due to recent warm temperatures affecting snow conditions across much of British Columbia, Red Bull Cold Rush will be postponed until March 23-26 when it will make its Revelstoke, B.C. 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," says Scott Jewett, National Event Manager.
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 with safety of the utmost importance.
