Red Bull Jib Ski Kings which originally began in Italy in 2011 makes it's North American debut in 2013 at Cypress Mountain, BC, Canada, on March 9th.
Using the natural terrain and incorporating existing features on the hill, this participatory ski contest encourages competitors to “think outside the box”. Multiple transitions into various hits, unique jib-inspired features and personal creativity will help competitors score big during this contest which promotes a more individual approach to park skiing.
Two features specifically designed and built by Red Bull for the event will be part of the course and will remain on hill for the duration of the season.
Registration Opens at 8:00am
Training Begins at 9:00am
Contest Begins at 10:30am
