RED BULL DOUBLE PIPE competition - BUTTERMILK
March 19 - March 23 FREE
The first time, ever, two competition halfpipes, side by side, rails, channels, wallrides and so many other amazing features with the best snowboarders in the world competing! Each halfpipe will be more than 550 feet long, 68 feet wide and 22 feet tall. There will be a 4-foot spine located between the pipes. Including the outside walls, the Red Bull Double Pipe will be 180 feet wide and more than 550 feet long, making it the largest halfpipe feature ever built for competition. Recently the Aspen Times showed the rendering of the SPT designed halfpipes, shown above.
Riders can go back and forth between the 2 halfpipes during one run. “Progression is a beautiful thing,” said John Rigney, the vice president of sales and events for the Aspen Skiing Co. “It’s always incredibly exciting having the best athletes in the world competing here in Aspen/Snowmass. But to see this select group tackle an entirely new challenge at Buttermilk right here in our backyard is going to be amazing.”
Buttermilk plans to have the double pipe open for public use after the event.
HAPPY FIRST DAY OF SPRING SKIING!!
