It’s about time! As we stated earlier this week, Gigi Ruf went head-to-head with the world’s best snowboarders and landed first place in this year’s Red Bull Ultra Natural. The future of Snowboarding competitions wrapped up last weekend at Baldface Lodge in British Columbia and Red Bull has released the highlights. We don’t understand how these riders, who are continuing to expand the sport every time they set foot on a mountain, can ride the lines they do with such reckless abandon. The highlight reel shows us some amazing footage from the weekend, including scenes from Gigi’s winning run. Red Bull Ultra Natural will air in its entirety on March 30th on NBC. But until then, enjoy the video below.

Yesterday, the world’s best snowboarders descended upon Baldface Lodge in British Columbia and competed in Red Bull Ultra Natural. In only its second year of existence, Red Bull Ultra Natural, created by snowboarding legend Travis Rice, has already become a highly-respected competition with both riders and fans of this ever-growing sport. We at RSVLTS believe that this event will be the future of competitive snowboarding. Gigi Ruf went head-to-head with riders like Travis Rice, Mark McMorris and Torstein Horgmo to take the top spot in this year’s competition. We are anxiously waiting for the footage to come back but here is a vintage video of Gigi crashing in the backcountry to get us excited.
