Get in the pen with Red Bull race

Squaw Valley USA – Red Bull Ultra-Cross, an event that puts skiers and snowboarders on the same team, returns to Squaw Valley USA, Jan. 19-20. The competition involves skiers and snowboarders in a relay-style race with one racer from each discipline making up the entire team (no coed teams).

Each team consists of one snowboarder and one skier. Four snowboarders start the race and ride down a moto-cross style course. Once the snowboarder crosses the finish line, their teammate (a skier) is released onto the course by an automatic start gate.

This event brings out both amateurs and pros, including 1998 World free-skiing champion Shane McConkey, 1998 Olympic snowboarder Adam Hostetter and 2000 Boarder-cross champion at Winter X Games Drew Neilson. The cost to compete in this event is $175 per team if registered by Jan. 3; it is $200 thereafter.
