What do you get when you put together some of the best freeskiers on the planet, put them in a helicopter and have a big mountain ski contest?  The Red Bull Cold Rush.  But that’s not all.  The event is jugded in 3 areas; slopestyle, big mountain and cliffs. The competitors will battle it out for the overall title, which will be awarded to the most versatile skier across all the competition elements. This video is a compilation of Day 1 and the big mountain skiing portion of the event.  Sweet airs, spins off everthing, backflips, landing switch and good times for all on Silverton Mountain in the San Juan Mountains in Colorado.

Skiers include Sage Cattabriga-Alosa, Leo Ahrens, Sean Pettit, Collin Collins, Suzanne Graham, Emiko Torito, Logan Pehota, Tim Durtschi, Dylan Hood, Dane Tutor and the man who took the victory, Dave Treadway.  Enjoy. Photo:
