The weekend of Schlitentag is upon us. Bold thinkers will be flocking to the Crystal Mountain Ski Resort, where three person teams build the fastest sled, then launch one of those team members down a a snow-covered hill and over a jump.
First place wins a team trip to Red Bull Soapbox Race Los Angeles in May.
Red Bull: Schlittentag is the German word for “sledding day”. Put simply, it translates as “daredevils willing to propel themselves down a snow-covered hill and over a jump on a sled they built themselves”.
This News is a service of:
Three person teams will stretch their imagination to build the wildest, fastest sled this side of the Alps. One will be the pilot and the two others will help give their sled the push it needs to win the race and the fame and fortune that follows.
It’s all happening on April 9th at Crystal Mountain Resort in Crystal Mountain, WA.
