Aspen, Colo. (April 10, 2014) – The world's best snowboarders descend on Buttermilk in Aspen, Colorado for a contest unlike anything ever seen before, featuring the largest and most progressive halfpipe structure built to date.
At Red Bull Double Pipe, which airs on NBC, Saturday April 12 at 2pm EST/11am PST as part of the Red Bull Signature Series, two 22' superpipes were constructed side-by-side, complete with rails, wallrides, and other unique features sprinkled throughout the custom built snow feature.
The competition includes 10 current and former Olympians, highlighted by Greg Bretz, Scotty Lago and Taylor Gold.
The 'double pipe' allows 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. Each superpipe in the Red Bull Double Pipe feature is over 550' long, approximately 68' wide, and 22' tall with an approximate 4' wide spine located in between each pipe. Including the outside walls, the overall feature is 180' wide and over 550' long.
The Red Bull Signature Series is the most progressive action sports event series in the world. Sal Masekela, the definitive voice in action sports, hosts the series that is now in its third year on NBC.
Red Bull Double Pipe is presented by Dodge Dart and brought to you in partnership with GoPro and Polaris RZR.
