Red Bull Cold Rush Postponed Until March 2015
Warm temperatures spark safety concerns forcing postponement of the freeski competition.
Due to recent warm temperatures negatively impacting snow conditions across much of British Columbia, Canada, Red Bull Cold Rush will be postponed until March 23-26, 2015, where it will remain in Revelstoke, BC. With safety of the upmost importance, the decision was made by event organizers to delay the contest.
Recent warming to the top of the mountain 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
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 the number one priority.
