Fancy Dress Skiers Brave Freezing Cold for Red Bull Jump and Freeze

Posted on March 25, 2013 by admin

In the Caucasus Mountains of Georgia, 25 teams of snowboarders and skiers took to a snowy slope in a bid to snag prizes and recognition in the Red Bull Jump and Freeze event.

But it’s not your standard skiing and snowboarding event. The main goal is to look as daft as possible; that and plunging into a big pool of freezing cold water.

Hailing from all walks of life, experienced and inexperienced winter sports fanatics gathered on the 17th of March to don their boards and skis and go sliding down the icy, 100-metre hill and perform a textbook landing into the pool. It certainly looks a bit nippy.

Competitors dressed up in the most zany, creative and eye-catching costumes they could find for the slope. A panel of judges – also dressed up – judged the outfits and the jump and handed out prizes for the more creative offerings.

This year, some of the more memorable costumes included Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, a giant shark, Superman and a variety of animals. One of the winning teams was a couple who took to the slope dressed as a bride and groom, calling themselves the poignant ‘Tragic Marriage’.

This is the second year for the odd event, having been held last year in St. Petersburg. With a bigger turnout this year and many more wacky outfits, it’s safe to say that when the event is held again next year, there’s the promise of yet more chilly, madcap antics.
