A manifestation of pro snowboarder Travis Rice’s wildest dreams, The Natural Selection Tour is the first winter sports tour to showcase the world’s top riders, from Olympians to big mountain film icons, competing on the planet’s most exciting natural and naturally-enhanced terrain. During COVID restrictions, Natural Selection held three successful tour stops in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, Baldface Lodge, British Columbia and Tordrillo Mountain Lodge, Alaska.
The events were broadcast via Red Bull TV in partnership with Yeti, Bronco Sport, and Hemp Fusion. The panel discusses how this tour came about, the challenges they faced during these times, and what’s next with the competition and the progression of snowboarding.
