With janky halfpipe conditions being a red hot topic in snowboarding right now, Red Bull has decided to take snowboarding to the next level. In the coming weeks Snow Park Technologies will be building two perfectly groomed halfpipes side-by-side. The event will be the first of its kind in snowboarding.

March 19th-23rd Red Bull Double Pipe will take over Buttermilk Mountain in Aspen, Colorado.

Dual pipes will allow the riders to transfer from pipe to pipe utilizing all that is available to them including rails, wallrides, channels and other unique features. Not only will the riders be encouraged to use both pipes they will also be judged on their style, creativity and overall use of the course.

Double Pipe Dimensions

The Red Bull Double Pipe in total will be 180 feet wide, 550 feet long and 22 feet tall with an approximate 4 foot wide spine located in between each pipe.
