The backwater shred tap is turned on full. Retallack Lodge, Red Bull and Freeride Entertainment have employed the mind blowing skills of the world’s skiing elite for a one-of-a-kind freeskiing competition. With over 6 motion cameras capturing the on hill action, with a crack team of editors and graphic effects artists holed up in the lodge itself, the athletes judge themselves after watching daily edits of their skiing. You could say it’s cutting edge, and it’s taking about 50 local guides, staff, cat and heli drivers to pull it all off.

KMC Editor Mitchell Scott is on site catching all the action, so check back for regular updates as Cold Rush moves through a huge big mountain venue, a backcountry booter session, and a natural cliff huck throwdown.
