A massive wreck took out dozens of skiers and snowboarders at this year’s Red Bull Homerun in Åre, Sweden. The event saw 500 participants, some racing for glory, some for spectacle, all flying down the slope at the same time. It’s a nutty race, with participants sprinting to their skis, then blasting down the slope toward the finish line in one big, crash-prone peloton. In typical Red Bull fashion, the finish line was a tremendous after-party.
