On March 19-23rd, the world’s best snowboarders will descend on Aspen to try their hand on a halfpipe (or two) unlike anything ever seen before. For the first time, two competition-spec halfpipes will be constructed side-by-side — complete with rails, wallrides, channels and other unique features sprinkled throughout the custom built snow feature. Located at the base of Buttermilk Mountain, the ‘double pipe’ will allow riders to transfer back and forth between the two halfpipes in a single run, opening up an endless number of potential lines and combination of tricks that are not possible in traditional halfpipe contests.
Daily videos, photos and event coverage will be hosted at Red Bull/Snow. Double Pipe will air on NBC, Saturday April 12th at 12pm MST, as part of the Red Bull Signature Series. If you're anywhere near Aspen, head up to Buttermilk — the event is FREE to attend.
