Crashed Ice is back in Quebec City!

First off, What is Crashed Ice?

Crashed Ice is what you get when you amp up a bunch of hockey players on Red Bull, tell them to race to the bottom of an icy hill, and be a hero. At all costs. Mayhem, adrenaline, speed, and nasty spills typically ensue. Fans describe it as a mix of hockey, downhill skating, and boardercross.

The Crashed Ice courses typically take place in an urban environment with thousands of people lining up along the course to get a glimpse of some of the action.

The Next Crashed Ice Event!

Crashed Ice’s next event is March 20th, 2010 in Quebec City! If you have the opportunity to check it out. Please go. For me. I wish to every deity, demi-god, or semi influential political figure that someday I’ll be able to go down a Crashed Ice Course. Every bone in my body aches to be hurt by this piece of architectural ingenuity. In the meantime, I have a date with a lot of drinks on March 20th at the nearest pub. Cheer loud!

      The coolest right?! They held tryouts last month, if I had my skates with me I soooo would have gone despite making an ass out of myself.

    Who ever invented this is completely off their rocker but awesome at the same time. I did an post a few months ago covering ‘extreme winter sports’ and included this. So glad to see it still happening, to bad I can’t make it up there for it though as it wouldn’t have been that bad of a drive from New England!

    That sounds like something that the men in my family would like. They could even make it into the March 20th race.

      You should definitely tell them to wander over and see this. I’ve had friends who’ve gone to see it in the past and they spoke extremely highly of it. Thanks for reading Leigh!
