The brainchild of snowboarding icon Travis Rice, Red Bull Supernatural is a first-of-its-kind backcountry competition designed to showcase the skills of the best all-around riders on the planet. Over 100 man-made features were built on the slope over the summer, so that once snow fell, a series of tree-line features, jumps and drops emerged creating the ultimate backcountry run.
