Killington welcomed back the Red Bull Slide-In Tour on Sunday, March 10.  X Games gold medalist and snowboard-style king Zeb Powell returned to the slopes at Killington with another stacked roster of Red Bull athletes, including: Alex Caccamo, Jesse Augustinus, Brantley Mullins, Brooklinn Khoury, Luke Eich, Kelly Wakasa, and Jamad Finn.

The schedule of events included sessions in the Peace Park on Ramshead, a clinic in Red’s Backyard, athlete autograph sessions and an après and athlete meet & greet.
Zeb Powell’s snowboard event has gone national, uniting snowboarders from across the U.S. celebrating snowboard culture one stop at a time. This year’s tour included four-stops through Minneapolis, Chicago, Detroit, Rochester and Killington.

Zeb Powell first teamed up with Red Bull to bring athletes together for Red Bull Slide-In Tour in 2017. It began and continues to be an opportunity for riders to come together in a format other than competitions.

“The tour is where we can be our most creative selves,” Powell said. “There is no risk to throwing crazy tricks or trying something new since it’s not a competition. When we are all together, we also come up with things that we wouldn’t come up with on our own.”
