What a weekend it was for the Adult 2* Qualifier at RED! 103 athletes - the most we've ever had - showed up to Links Line and put on a mind-blowing performance. From big airs to backies, these shredders keep pushing freeriding to the next level. We're already super stoked to see what the athletes have in store for us next year! A HUGE thank you to our incredible sponsors for hooking up the champions with top tier gear. Long Live Links Line!!!

The Canadian Open U12 Junior Regionals and Junior 3* events were an electrifying showcase, featuring over 200 of the premier junior skiers in North America battling it out for the prestigious Freeride Crown. Despite facing challenging conditions, these young daredevils fearlessly shredded down Link’s Line, defying gravity with jaw-dropping stunts and heart-pounding maneuvers. Their boundless energy and infectious enthusiasm lit up the slopes, leaving no doubt that the future of freeskiing is in the hands of these thrill-seeking prodigies. Check out the photos from the event!
Despite the wet weather, this year’s Rail Jam popped off as the hoard of shredders attacked the features on Queen St in Downtown Rossland. RED’s new terrain park crew built a course that was bigger and better than ever. Skiers and snowboarders of all ages slipped ‘n slided down the rails, while spectators cheered and gasped from the sidelines. Oh, and we can’t forget the wild bunch who had the courage to try their hand at hitting features on snow skates. Congrats to all the rippers that topped the podium and a big thanks to our sponsors and friends at The Shop that helped make this event possible.
Nestled mid-mountain, aspiring yogis found a tranquil escape at the Constella Cabins. Blending breathtaking views with transformative yoga sessions, lead with passion and poise by Danielle Hachey from Madhu. A night filled with new friends, good food, serene mountain views and solitude, it was a night to remember! Check out the photos from the event.
There were plenty of hoppy faces at the 3rd Battle of the Brews Event in Rafters. The two time champs – Rossland Beer Co, came on strong serving their classic Red Zeppelin Raspberry Wheat Ale. But it couldn’t compete with Tailout Brewings Limited Release, Bluebird Hazy Session IPA. Crowned the Kootenays’ King of Beers, there were lots of cheers and only a few tears! Thank you to Wild North, Torchlight and Steamworks Breweries for coming out! And don’t forget the amazing tunes and endless energy from the Karli Harrison Band! As Tailout would say, be kind and tight lines, until next time!

Helloooo 2024! Today is January 9th, and while December was a slow start to the season, January has been absolutely full throttle with Mother Nature working overtime.
