Photo Gallery: Red Bull Ice Rail

Red Bull’s Winch Sessions crew spent 10 days carving 8-inch by 8-inch blocks of ice out of a frozen pond to construct this ice rail in Minneapolis. After stacking the blocks to form the 60-foot-long up-flat rail, an ice sculptor came in to bind the structure and smooth out the top. On either side of the rail, 30-foot-long holes left from the ice excavation served as start and landing pools for Red Bull riders JD Webb, Adam Errington and Josh Tranby. The trio spent two days braving the freezing temperatures to lay down everything from 270s to a variety of presses.

“It was a little bit more slippery than Trex,” Webb says, “but it wasn’t holding us back from doing anything. Anything you could do on a flat rail, we were pretty much doing.”
