WATCH: Red Bull’s Linecatcher, a next-level backcountry contest, returns for a third year

Slightly lost in all the Tanner Hall controversy surrounding last year’s Linecatcher, was the fact that the contest itself was all time.  The contest is the perfect next-level mix of big-mountain skiing (emphasis on big) with terrain park style kickers launching competitors to seriously brave ski artistry.  Candide Thovex took home top honors last year on a podium that included the late CR Johnson, who finished third.  Check out Candide’s winning run from last year below.  This year’s Red Bull Linecatcher features 15 invited riders, the best freeskiers in the world, slaying untouched snow in Vars, France from January 15-22, 2011.  T.O. says to get your popcorn ready.
