Snow Park Niagara Falls' SnowMagic technology makes snow all summer long to prolong winter fun. The technology can make snow in ANY temperature. Other summer activities include an NHL size rink with artificial ice, a snow play area and a tubing hill that will be converted for Red Bull Butter Cup features.
Red Bull Buttercup is a contest series that takes place on East Coast. It's all about how much style Snowboarders can spread onto the custom-made board features also known as a "butterpads." Jib, bonk, tap and slide your way across the multi-featured pad, however you like, just make sure you lay it on with a lot of smooth buttering.
50 of the top East Coast Regional riders will go head-to-head in a jam formatted event, carving and spreading the snow like butter for $5000 in cash and prizes. Overall style and creativity will help the cream rise to the top. Only tricks that include buttering will count for judging, so be ready to spread it on in this purely pasteurized competition!
