To determine the official start order for Red Bull Ultra Natural, each competing snowboarder took part in a series of logging games. Athletes were timed through log carrying, log sawing, and nail hammering tasks, then took turns hurling an axe at a target to increase their standing. Not exactly your typical contest seeding process, but of course, Red Bull Ultra Natural is anything but a typical contest.
The event takes place during the February 15-21 holding period, and a full-event recap will air on NBC as part of the Red Bull Signature Series on March 30 at 1:30 p.m. ET / 10:30 a.m. PT.
