Red Bull Butter Cup: Drinkys Easton, PA

February 12th, 2012 by Elusive Media

Last year Red Bull helped sponsor a local event called Rail Jam, which Drinky’s created. Because of the success of last years event, Red Bull added Easton, PA as one of it’s stops on the Butter Cup Series. Unlike last year, which allowed skiers to be involved, this event was for snowboarders only with women, men, and kids broken into different heats. As Red Bull says it, “more flow and smoother than ever before”; This let the riders have more freedom to show of their style. Despite the warmer weather all season, organizers brought in over 40 tons of snow which was needed for the 16ft high ramp and 180ft area w/ a mix of rails and jumps.
Winners: Under 13 – Thomas Melchiore Women – Jess Kurman Best Trick – Kyle Luza Pro – Peter Pape
