Sometimes, skiers and snowboarders can take themselves a bit too seriously. Well, not here they don’t! It’s against the rules.
For the first time ever, Red Bull Jump & Freeze will be hitting the slopes of Mzaar Ski Resort, Kfardebian. On the 1st of March 2015, twenty of the wackiest teams will dress up, or create a funky vehicle, and slide down the Jonction slope, onto a kicker, and land into a freezing pool. Sounds insane, doesn’t it? That’s the point.
Don’t worry though. Countries like Turkey, Russia, Kazakhstan and Georgia have all stepped up their game and sense of humor. This year, it’s Lebanon’s turn!
So how does it work, you ask? Well, three-member teams will be competing in front of a jury panel, who will be judging based on costumes/vehicles, crowd cheering (including online votes), and the jump of course. The judges will be awarding prizes for each criterion, and an ultimate winning team with the highest score.
You and your colleagues or friends are of course more than welcome to participate!
All you need to do is visit www.redbull.com/jumpandfreeze, form a team of three members, fill in the information required, and submit a sketch of the costume or vehicle you have in mind. Can’t draw? No biggie. You can get as creative as possible! There are no limits.
The registration phase will close on the 22nd of February 2015. Once the registration phase is closed, we will select 20 of the most awesome teams to participate. The top 20 teams will go through an online voting period, by gathering as many votes as possible on their Red Bull Jump & Freeze sketches!
Let’s not take ourselves too seriously here, time to get wet’n wild!
