Skiers Throw Down at Cold Rush

Watch highlights from day one of premier big mountain event

You think you’re a good skier, and then you watch the guys and gals competing in the Red Bull Cold Rush. Negotiating burly terrain at Revelstoke, and throwing down huge threes, sevens, and even a massive back flip by Stan Rey, these 21 athletes prove they are among the best of the best.

The event kicked off Wednesday under high clouds and biting Canadian temperatures. A day after thick clouds and snow shut down the Spilt Milk venue, the collection of big mountain, park, and backcountry shredders put on a show for the spectators in Greely Bowl. The event wraps up tomorrow, as competitors vie for a $36,000 cash purse.
