The Cream Will Rise to the Top as Red Bull Butter Cup Series Expands in 2011
December 1, 2010 – (Santa Monica, CA) –The Red Bull Butter Cup series, which lets snowboarders spread their smooth style onto custom-made features, is expanding to 22 stops in its 3rd year and spanning peaks across the United States. Resorts from Tahoe, CA to Mount Snow, VT will host local athletes hoping to butter up the judges to earn bragging rights – and a little cheddar.
So what exactly makes one buttery? It's all about how much style each rider can spread on the custom-built features also known as "butterpads." Riders jib, bonk, tap and slide their way across a multi-featured pad, showcasing their skills and not skimping on the flair.
Each stop will feature local riders in a Pro/Am format, where they will battle it out in a jam for cash and prizes, where overall style and creativity will help the cream rise to the top. Only trick sequences that include buttering will count. Registration is available on-site only, and limited to the first 100 snowboarders that sign up. Participants will be split into Pro or Am divisions based on skill level. Shredders under 18 are welcome, but must be with a legal guardian on-site to register.
