Inspired by the region's rugged and wild history of logging and lumberjacks, Red Bull Foret Urbaine will take over the Village of Mont-Tremblant on April 12th. This will be the premier season-closing freestyle event at Mont-Tremblant.
Freeskiers will descend through a custom designed course constructed entirely of natural log features built into the village streets. Obstacles are locally sourced, constructed entirely from logs giving it a natural vibe to reflect what you might find in the woods.
At 400m long, skiers have a choice of two lines, starting from the athlete hotel room balcony, and ending with a 15’-canon pipe. Male and female skiers will battle to impress the judges who will be looking for style, difficulty, amplitude and trick selection in their runs.
Want to compete? 5 of the invited skiers are being picked by Red Bull in collaboration with the event's official media partner newschoolers.com. Sound out here if you think you should be invited or would like to suggest someone who should be on the invite list.
Tremblant was built with a wood axe. Outside of a world class ski hill, the Mont-Tremblant region was the heart of a longstanding logging community which laid the foundation for the surrounding town today. Red Bull Foret Urbaine pays homage to the tradition and logging culture that brought Mont-Tremblant to life. Don't miss it!
