Nicolas Müller Takes Home Second Place & Best Trick at Red Bull Ultra Natural

The TransWorld Snowboarding Rider's Poll Rider of the Year has done it again, this time placing second and winning best trick for the loftiest mute grab of the day in the 2013 Red Bull Ultra Natural contest. This year, sixteen of the world's best riders, including held slots for the X Games Slopestyle winner and wildcard riders picked by an industry panel, were given the privilege of riding Travis Rice's dream course on a 55+ degree slope in the Canadian backcountry all competing for the first place prize of $75,000.

The helicopter was circling the course all day capturing footage via a gyro-stabilized HD camera so stay tuned for the entire Ultra Natural contest coverage, airing on NBC March 30.
