Jesper Tjäder’s signature event is back in Åre, Sweden this week for a second edition. New this year: even more out-of-this-world rail setups and a livestream on Friday!

Originally born as an insane Jesper Tjäder video project that soon spawned an even crazier sequel, Red Bull Unrailistic has since grown into a full-fledged invitational event. This week in Jesper’s hometown of Åre, Sweden, a stacked crew of invited skiers will step to one of the craziest rail setups on the planet, and you’re invited to watch — in person or online.

The hype is real for this event, especially considering the throwdown that happened last year, when freeski veteran Andreas Håtveit surprised everyone by claiming victory over a stacked field of riders, some half his age.

This year’s course kicks off with a rollercoaster box, followed by a six-rail constellation called “The Dice” that allows for triple rail transfers. Farther down the course there’s an enormous flat-down rail, the signature Unrailistic rainbow, and a pond skim at the bottom including a “wave” feature. Toss in a few more special features like a rail to trampoline and the curvaceous “Tjäder Twist,” and you’ve got yourself one hell of an event setup.
