  • Red Bull 3Style Travels to the Polish Mountains

    Posted by on | No comments

    On Tuesday, this year’s Red Bull 3Style contestants and judges took a day trip to Zakopane, Poland, a popular area known for winter sports. They got on two busses and drove two hours to a mountain named Kasprowy Wierch.

    After hanging out on the slopes, they had dinner at a local restaurant that served traditional Polish cuisine. They then took a horse-drawn sleigh ride through the forest to a campfire where a local Polish folk band greeted them.

    Watch above and follow us on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and YouTube for exclusive 3Style coverage.
