Alternate Reality: Red Bull Flips the Script With ‘Uphill’ Snowboarding

Leave it to Red Bull to figure out uphill snowboarding.

Usually, you’re using gravity to your advantage when it comes to snowsports. Clemens Millauer decided to go against the grain for this recent Red Bull snowboarding film.

Watch Millauer and friends shred uphill with help from multiple conveyances like helicopters and snowmobiles.

Forget skinning. Forget splitboarding. Clemens rocks it the wrong way through the park, hits the halfpipe in reverse, rides the chairlift downhill, and even stunts through a logging site.

Uphill or downhill — who’s to say?
