Red Bull Raid

Red Bull Raid is an event focused on hiking your own line. A true test of speed and skill for both uphill and downhill. What makes the event unique is that the competition is composed of two parts: ski touring or splitboarding up & then the descent! 200 points per run are up for grabs and are evenly weighted (100 for the climb + 100 for the descent) between each part. This event will take place on Silverado at Squaw Valley. For more information, please visit

Event Format
  • Maximum of 60 total competitors across all categories
  • Competition Venue: Silverado run at Squaw
  • Hike your own line. 2 Heats (seeding determined by registration order) mass start at the base of Silverado. Tour/Splitboard to the top. Start order in each heat and finals is determined based off your climb from the base of Silverado to the starting gate at the top as well as your transition time. There will be a cut to each heat after run number 1 based on a natural break in scores. 
  • Each run can score a maximum of 200 points (100 for the Climb + 100 for the Descent)
  • 1st to the top in each category will score the maximum 100 points for the Climb. Each position after that will be an incremental deduction of 1 points.  
  • The Descent will be scored by a panel of 3 Judges. 1-100 point system with 3 categories:
    • Style - 40 points max
    • Line - 30 points max
    • Control - 30 points max
  • Average of the three judges scores to determine overall score for that run
  • Both climbs and both big mountain runs will be added together for the total score.
