The week of February 20th, Grouse Mountain played host to a week-long innovation session for some of the world's top snowboarders. Mark McMorris (CAN), Seb Toutant AKA Seb Toots (CAN), Craig McMorris (CAN), Mickey Ciccarelli (CAN), Tyler Nicholson (CAN), Scotty James (AUS) and Yuki Kadono (JPN) took on a custom-built course designed to allow ultimate innovation and creativity beyond what’s traditionally defined as progression in snowboarding.
Through collaboration with our Grouse Parks team, the Red Bull Uncorked course concept dreamed up by Seb and Mark was brought to reality. The idea that began during a late night brainstorm session required over 260 hours to become the visually stunning elite terrain located on The Cut, overlooking the City. Work on the course took place over a two-week period leading up to the athletes’ arrival.
The result of the project is a 3-minute action clip entitled Red Bull Uncorked highlighting the best moments of these athletes hitting the custom playground. You can also check out a review of the special course features on the Red Bull website here
