We at NS are getting seriously excited for Red Bull ReDirect this Friday, which takes place on what looks like one of the greatest comp set-ups we've seen in recent years. We'll be covering the whole event here at NS so make sure to check back for videos, recaps and all the best moments. For now, check out what ski legend and course designer JF Houle had to say about the upcoming event here, and get yourself down there because it's going to be insane.

The Course


The set-up was inspired by urban infrastructures and designed to amplify the existing urban landscape of the historical city already well known to street skiers internationally. It consists of 5 key sections including 2 massive redirect walls.

1. Upper Rail section

2. Upper Mega Wall

3. Lower down rails

4. Lower Vert Wall

5. The Container

Red Bull ReDirect starts at 7pm on Friday February 12th @ Place d'Youville in the heart of Quebec City. The venue is open to spectators of all ages and free of admission. Let us know who you think will take home the coveted first ever Red Bull ReDirect title using #ReDirect2016.
