Red Bull ButterCup at NorthStar

The Red Bull Butter Cup Made its way to Northstar At Tahoe last week and the crew brought out some sweet renditions of the Red Bull obstacles for the kids to get all nice and buttery on. With an up ledge with snow creeper sides, an up pad to snow pad and then down box, a lil lip to snowpad and a butter pad down, and a side butter pad with a Northstar snowmaking tube on the top lip of it. The kids got down and some super sick butter combos were out all over the place with some competitors buttering the entire run into the obstacles. The Butter was think and spread all over the place. Here are some of the photos of the action. One of the many Northstar Groms buttering the pad, these kids are the future The Tri Pod was brought out on the snow pad. Mike Burton Was in the House Mike Burton gettin buttery on the Northstar rail Connor Hatt tail slide all nice and pressed out the ladies division was heated with a bunch of steezy girls The Setup was fun for everyone who competed.
