Redbull's UltraNatural contest went down last week, and Gigi Rüf walked away with the title. The groundbreaking event a slope style course built onto a backcountry peak at Baldface lodge and the pitch is littered with jibs, drops, jumps, and other features.
"Sixteen of the world's best snowboarders converged on the run known as "Scary Cherry" at Baldface Lodge, fighting deteriorating weather as the day went along, but only one rider could take home the top honor at Red Bull Ultra Natural. In the end, Austria's Gigi Rüf stood on top of the podium after putting together a creative run showcasing his unique style, utilizing a variety of both the natural and man-made features on the mile long course. Switzerland's Nicolas Müller not only took second place but was also presented the Best Trick Award with a gigantic mute air over a tree, sending himself nearly 100-feet down the 45+ degree course. "
