1st Annual Red Bull Wrangle The Chute comp at Kicking Horse this weekend.
This coming weekend at Kicking Horse Mt resort hold on to your hats as the first annual "Wrangle the Chute" gets under way. A big mt slopstyle event with a bucking bronco finish line. Faction will be there in full force with Ryan Oakden and Alex Wall fresh off winning a rail jam in the nelson area and local hero Tavis "meatsaw" Menzies. Tavis when asked about the interesting makeup of the event said "...finally a comp that includes dropping cliffs getting rad and drinking fast!"
The showdown combines skiers and snowboarders into a single 'chute out' down KHMR's signature runs off the CPR ridge. The runs will be layered with numerous rodeo style jib features and a buckaroo 'step-up' at the bottom of the course. Athletes will finish their run by saddling up and holding on as their friends and foe try to buck them off the bungee activated bronco.
