Winter Wonderland in NYC

Last week you may have noticed a gigantic snow ramp appeared on the east side of Manhattan in the East River Park and wondered what the heck was going on. Well Red Bull was throwing a radical event called “Red Bull Snowscrapers” which had 16 of the world’s best snowboarders competing for a $100,000 prize purse.

One of the riders was probably the most famous snowborder in the world right now, the man known as the Flying Tomato, Olympic Gold Medalist Shaun White.

We sent some brave souls over to the man-made snow world in the freezing cold this past Thursday to snap some photos of White. Here they are:
