Gearing Up for Big Mountain Events

For the last two weeks we have been focusing on skiing steep gnarly lines, airing of cliffs, and clean, fluid Telemark technique in technical terrain as we gear up for Taos and Crested Butte. It has been exciting to watch experienced skiers attack this terrain with new creativity and comfort and new skiers find a body position that allows them to connect turns in the steeps.

Today saw several breakthroughs in skiing hard pack, steep terrain (including an epic backwards slide down Goudy's by Kelsey Bohannan!) as well as huge breakthroughs in the park (including 72os by Luke Lubchenco and corked 900s coming from Dillon Smith!).

Check out the slideshow below for some shots of the crew sending some cliffs last week.
