Travis Rice will be at Tribute Boardshop Tomorrow for poster signings

With the biggest snowboard contest in the world kicking off at Baldface Lodge just days away, locals will have their chance to meet the man behind it all in Nelson.

Travis Rice, Lucas Debari and more will be in Nelson at Tribute Boardshop on Baker Street Wednesday, February 1, from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m.

During the hour-long session, fans will be able to meet the riders as well as receive a signed poster.

The Red Bull Supernatural event will begin just days later on Friday with 18 of the world’s best snowboarders vying to claim top spot.

As of Monday, the final two spots for the event were spoken for with Canadian slopestyler, Mark McMorris, and American Sage Kotsenburg taking their wildcard invitations. The two young guns will join 16 legends in the first of its kind backcountry snowboard competition.

McMorris qualified twice for the Red Bull Supernatural contest, first as the World Tour slopestyle points leader as of January 15 and second by winning gold in X Games slopestyle just days ago.

“Red Bull Supernatural is all the absolute legends and best snowboarders in the world riding something that has never been touched before. It’s going to be exciting to watch and compete in,” said McMorris in a press release.

The Red Bull Supernatural special will air on NBC on March 31 as a part of a new sports programming block called the Red Bull Signature Series and will feature the most progressive snowboarding, mountain biking, motocross, skiing and BMX events.
