Ultra Natural Anticipation

[UPDATE: Watch the full Red Bull Ultra Natural TV show]

This is a collection of shots before Ultra Natural happened. Excitement and anticipation filled the air. From arrival at the heli pad, to the first night at Baldface Lodge, the best vibes radiated this remote snowboard paradise outside of Nelson BC. Night one there was a delicious welcome dinner where Baldface Lodge owner, Jeff Pensiero, Ultra Natural visionary, Travis Rice, and event director Liam Griffin, all spoke, letting the elite invited riders know how the week and event was going to play out. Hope you enjoy the shots! Not that you need any additional inspiration to watch Ultra Natural this Saturday.
