Red Bull Joyride is the premier slopestyle event in the world, the Super Bowl of the sport and the culmination of the Crankworx Slopestyle World Tour. Legends have been born here; careers have been made here; champions have been crowned here.
A step above the Gold Pass, the Crankworx Skybox delivers the ultimate viewing experience of Red Bull Joyride. Get 40’ above the action for awe-inspiring sightlines of the culminating celebration of Crankworx World Tour. Add in an assortment of Red Bulls, refreshing beverages, full-service host bar and a selection of appetizers carefully selected and prepared by the Bearfoot Bistro and you truly have a once in a lifetime experience.
The afternoon will kick-off with a tradition that dates back to the Napoleonic era, when cleanly sabering the top off a bottle of Champagne meant good luck in the battle to come.
