Be sure to tune in to NBC on 3/24 at 1PM EST to watch the world’s best skiers conquer Silverton’s rugged cliffs and untouched backcountry in the ultimate freeski competition. Current and/or former TGR athletes that competed in the event include Dash Longe, Kye Peterson, Sage Cattabriga-Alosa, Tim Durtschi, Wiley Miller, Callum Pettit & Rachael Burks.

As part of the Red Bull Signature Series, Red Bull Cold Rush airs this Saturday, March 24 on NBC at 1:00 p.m. ET/10:00 a.m. PT. Hosted by Sal Masekela, a definitive voice in action sports and entertainment, the invitation-only event comes to stunning Silverton Mountain in Colorado, North America's highest and steepest ski area. Only accessible via helicopter or hiking, the high-alpine bowls, chutes and cliffs are home to the one-of-a-kind competition.

Update: A friend who lives just north of San Francisco said it's airing 11am his time, so I guess best to check your local listings if you wanna watch/record.

Shane McConkey Movie 2013

Watching the Red Bull Cold Rush tour from Silverton Colorado, I caught the premier of the trailer for the Shane McConkey Movie that is coming out in 2013.  

Done by Red Bull and Matchstick Productions, I'm really looking forward to seeing this.  popcorn.gif

Oh, and the Red Bull Cold Rush was wicked!

I'm not sure what's freakier  - The avalanche risk or the avalanche debris after clearing the area.

Glad I DVR'd this and will DVR future Red Bull Events. 

 

Oh, and they are airing the Rahlves Banzai Tour from Sugar Bowl in three days.  Can't wait!

The trailer has just been released: http://www.theskichannel.com/featured/20120324/red-bull-releases-trailer-for-upcoming-film-mcconkey/

 

This will be an intense experience to watch.  Maybe take my Machete FB's with me.

Thanks for the link.  I saw the trailer on NBC during the Cold Rush today but couldn't find the link to it.

You're right about the intensity.  Living near Squaw, I know many people who were close to Shane.  I even had a yoga session with Sherri McConkey.  She is a beautiful and courageous woman in her own right.

I DVR'd it and watched it later in the day.

Did you see the movie trailer for the Shane McConkey Movie?  It is supposed to be out in 2013

Tried to watch at a friend's but NBC time-shifted it till later in the afternoon due to golf!  :-(

 

There is a good 10 minute highlight clip available here...

Come over to our house.  I haven't erased the DVR yet biggrin.gif

 

 

In the meantime, I merged the threads. - Made sense to me.

Appreciate the offer, but not sure when I might be able to take you up on it.

In the interim, any chance you could dump it to VHS, er, DVD? For posterity?  ;-)

Cool, thanks.


Back to the goods, it is kinda interesting to watch these one after the other...

(Can't embed that ^^^clip)

 

 

I'm guessing Logan Pehota is Eric Pehota's kid, so there's some cool continuity there!

 

20 years of "extreme" evolution!  ;-)

That's good because I DVR'd it, knowing that I fall asleep before 10PM(when it aired here) and the DVR missed the last 5 minutes of it. 

Thanks for sharing.

And that's good, cause the last few minutes is when Rahlves does his thing.

 

They way they ski, on that course, in those conditions - especially Rahlves - mightily impressive! icon14.gif
