If you really think about it, Red Bull has been pioneering the creativity and building of so many skiing and boarding related things lately. I feel like there's going to be a lasting influence from what Red Bull is doing right now. I mean, there are three hugely creative things that have gone down/are going to go down in the past year:
Simon Dumont's Cubed Pipe:
Red Bull Supernatural:
and, as someone just posted in another thread, this "Red Bull Third Shift" build:

Sparknotes: I think Red Bull is pioneering a creative movement in the skiing and snowboarding world, and they will influence snowsports and their future, what do you think?
When I was 5 years old, my mom told me that happiness was the key to life.
When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I
wrote down “happy”. They told me I didn’t understand the assignment. I told
them they didn’t understand life.” – John Lennon

While I don't really like all that red bull stands for, holy shit do they have some creative minds. its a brilliant business strategy, and as for influencing our sport, I think they do, even if it is just with sponsoring athletes like Simon to do stuff like the cubed pipe. shits unreal.

NS is like your family. It's dysfunctional as hell but you still have to love it.

I think what they do for a lot of "action sports" (I hate that term) is a great thing, for the most part their contest are super creative and innovative. They let the riders play a massive role in setting up courses, jumps, rules, etc. Good company giving to the community. I can dig them.

MBB. Stay true to the game fuck them lames keep it motha fuckin' G.
I feel like Red Bull doesn't have all that much to do with the actual events... all they're really doing is fronting the cash and plastering the name/logo on events, and letting the athletes go wild. So while I do agree that without Red Bull, a lot of these things wouldn't have happened, they certainly aren't the creative ones here - they're just very good at marketing.

Yeah, but you have to think about resources, connections, and all that other stuff. Sure, Red Bull is helping a lot with giving the cash, but I don't think there would be so much good coming from it if they were to just throw money at a rider and say, "do something cool". I definitely think the company itself is half of the influence...
