DATE: April 16-17, 2010
LOCATION: Copper Mountain, CO
DETAILS: The Red Bull 1976 Games are headed to Copper Mountain, CO. Teams sporting vintage gear will compete in two events, “Snowbladecross” and “Old School Air.” Teams will be judged the Red Bull way: event performance, creativity, and overall 70’s style. Prizes will also be awarded for best costume and team mojo. So grow (or stick on) those mustaches, squeeze into your one-piece and get ready to party like it’s 1976.
So what inspired this wackiness? More than 30 years ago, Denver was awarded the 1976 Winter Olympics. Then, a coalition of activists and politicians campaigned against it and the games moved to Innsbruck, Austria, instead. Well, it’s time the year 1976 had its day state-side!
