Bull Crashed Ice is coming to Edmonton, and will be shaking up the
downtown core tonight and tomorrow. This is the first time the event has
landed in Edmonton, and spectators will be treated to a great weekend
of free entertainment.

Edmonton’s massive
urban ice track will weave its way from within the city centre all the
way down to Edmonton’s River Valley. Stretching an enormous 415 metres
from top to bottom, with a 45m vertical drop and 9 turns, Edmonton’s
track will showcase skaters’ strength, speed, and technique like never

This weekend will wrap up up the Crashed Ice season, and we encourage you to head down to the river valley and check it out. RED BULL CRASHED ICE IN EDMONTON THIS WEEKEND
