Ultimate freeskiing competition: The Red Bull Cold Rush

Retallack’s steep and deep mountain landscape hosted the fourth edition of Red Bull Cold Rush. Twelve male skiers and, for the first time in the event’s history, five of their female counterparts competed for the title of the most versatile and best all-around skier at Red Bull Cold Rush from March 23-27, 2010. The three-discipline competition will deliver three components: Big Mountain, Slopestyle and Pillow Lines.
Sean Pettit and Suzanne Graham were crowned "The Most Versatile and Best All-Around Skiers" at Red Bull Cold Rush 2010.
Retallack (British Columbia, CA) prides itself on 'being in the right place. Retallack offers 38 square kms (9500 acres) on three main mountain peaks called Reco, Wishful and Texas. These peaks and their long alpine ridge lines (Reco is 7 km long!) form perfect snowcat access drop off points at elevations between 7000' and 8500'.
