Red Bull Schlittentag
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 will be the most winter fun you’ve had sitting down.
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.
April 6, 2013 Registration starts at 10am. First Craft at 1:03pm Awards and DJ Party on the Deck @ 3:30pm.
