The ‘Red Bull Slide-In Tour’ slides through Stratton Mountain
Get in the RV! Back for 2021, Red Bull came through Vermont as part of the Red Bull Slide-In Tour. The Tour is a nine-day road trip along historic Vermont Route 100. Setting sail through the Green Mountains, the trip up Route 100 began in Stratton with a stacked lineup of snowboarders. X Games Gold Medalist, Zeb Powell, Miles Fallon and Vermont native and snowboard phenom Maggie Leon, who joined the crew during the 2020 tour. “It was really sick to be able to join the tour for a couple of stops last year,” Leon said. “I’m stoked to officially be included on the roster and to ride some of my favorite local mountains”
The tour included stops at Killington Resort, Stratton Mountain and Jay Peak as well as urban park riding in Burlington, VT. The crew will also be veering off the beaten path, to explore some of Vermont’s hidden gems, and tapping into the roots of the Vermont snow scene.
“I announced this in 2020 but making the mountain more colorful is a mission I am going to continue to stay true to with everything I do,” said Powell. “I’m so excited to meet up with the Chill Foundation and support everything they are doing to make snowboarding more diverse and inclusive.”
For 2021 Red Bull has partnered with another powerhouse in the industry, Teton Gravity Research (TGR), to produce a short film that will highlight and create a deeper narrative around the snow culture in Vermont – from its origins to the Vermont way of life, to the future of the sport.
