Super Bowl snowmobile jump planned for downtown Minneapolis

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Away from the U.S. Bank Stadium, football fans will find a range of Super Bowl events, from free concerts to national TV broadcasts.

It will also bring a high-flying stunt to Nicollet Mall for the first time.

Orgnizers will set up what’s being called UpsideDowntown at 11th Street and Nicollet Mall in Minneapolis.

A giant snowmobile ramp will launch professional snowmobilers high into the air for a show over downtown.

The finale will feature Levi LaVallee doing a backflip on his sled. He says he’s already put in a lot of practice.

“I think we’ll be going about 50 miles per hour when we hit the ramp,” he said. “At least 100-foot long jump, 40 feet in the air — it’s a big, big jump.”

This all goes down at 1:30 p.m. Feb. 3. The Super Bowl will be played Feb. 4.
