Professional snowboarders including X Games gold medalist Zeb Powell, Benny Milam and Jesse Augustinus to ride six mountains in nine days across the region

Today, Red Bull announces the return of the Red Bull Slide-In Tour, a nine-day road trip across the northeast — the historic home of snowboarding — featuring professional riders Zeb Powell, Benny Milam and Jesse Augustinus.

The tour kicks off Thursday, March 5 at Mountain Creek Resort in New Jersey, with additional stops across Vermont and New Hampshire. Throughout the trip, Zeb, Benny and Jesse will be joined in their RV by friends and fellow pro snowboarders, Sean Neary and Miles Fallon. Expect the crew to session with locals and stack footage all along the way.

On the mountain, fans will have opportunity to catch the action up-close-and-personal.

TOUR SCHEDULE

March 5: Mountain Creek, NJ

March 6: Stratton, VT

March 7: Killington, VT

March 9: Jay Peak, VT

March 12: Loon, NH

March 13: Waterville Valley, NH

The Red Bull Slide in Tour is a celebration of Northeast snowboarding and everything it has to offer. The terrain and conditions are known to cultivate creativity and a die-hard passion for the sport. None would know better than Vermont resident, Zeb Powell.

“This tour is great because I’ll be riding with my friends and we feed off each other’s energy to go out and try new tricks,” said Zeb. “Being from the east coast, I appreciate almost any snow condition that’s throw at me!”

This year marks the second year of the Red Bull Slide-In Tour, with Zeb and Jesse also participating in 2019. New Jersey native, Sean Neary, will join Jesse and Zeb at the Mountain Creek stop, with Benny and Miles jumping in the RV at the Jay Peak stop on March 9.

ABOUT ZEB POWELL | @ZEBPOWELLL

Zeb Powell, a Vermont resident originally hailing from North Carolina, rose to stardom this year during X Games Aspen by taking home top honors in the Knuckle Huck event. The 20 year-old goofy footer has a knack for melding classic style with creative tricks and amplitude. His signature blend of a super-smooth rail game with shifty spins and tweaked-out grabs has been turning heads for years.

ABOUT JESSE AUGUSTINUS | @JESSEAUGUSTINUS

No mountains is no problem for Jesse Augustinus, the Dutch rail master. At eight years of age Jesse Augustinus stood on a snowboard for the first time. Why? Because he was bored during the winter. These days he’s a familiar face on the international scene, competing in competitions like Burton Rail Days, Stairsmaster and Red Bull The Station, which he won in 2015, while in 2016 he topped the podium at DC Shred Fest.

ABOUT BENNY MILAM | @MENNYBILAM

Born and raised in the heartland of America and a hotbed of professional snowboarding, Benny Milam’s Minnesota roots shine through both in his skillset and his work ethic. Benny is the definition of a natural as his riding is powerful, fluid and technical, all melded into one innate style that is visible in all aspects of his riding. On top of taking home the top spot at last year’s renowned rail jam Rock-A-Rail and landing in third place at the 2020 Winter Dew Tour Streetstyle jam, Benny has also been filming some of the most mind-bending video parts of SNOWBOARDER Magazine the last two years.

ABOUT MILES FALLON| @MILES_FALCON

Hailing from Island Heights, New Jersey, Miles Fallon’s surroundings shaped his snowboarding. “I grew up riding at Big Boulder and I was able to jib a lot and flip off a bunch of little jumps. Everyone there has a pretty unique style and because I was surrounded by that, I was able to discover my style, which is sick.”

ABOUT SEAN NEARY | @_NEARON

A born-and-bred, tried and true east coaster, Sean Neary is a powerful technician both in and out of the park and a prototypical product of the famed Mountain Cree, New Jersey. According to Sean, he grew up riding typical right coast conditions with a crew, which helped shape his riding to be versatile and spontaneous, which is a recipe for explosive snowboarding. “We ride sugar, ice, and there are big crowds. It’s New Jersey, so we learn to love the conditions and taking an alternative approach to them while zipping around people. The conditions are what you make it out to be!”
