On March 13th, 2010, Colorado FreeSkier put on one of the sweetest events that has ever been put on in Crested Butte, Co.
"Big Air On Elk 2010"
We closed down our main street of Elk Ave, trucked in over 100 tons of snow and built a huge kicker that was hit by a lot of our team riders. Being pulled in by snowmobiles at 38 mph these guys were throwing down. 7's 9's Dave Sugnet even buttered around a 10!
Check out these great pics that were taken by Reny Sieck! The first one is snow being moved into the landing to make it soft for our competitors. Athlete meeting, and then Drew VanGorder giving the opening Test run showing the guys how fast they need to get going. Some really great pics of these guys showing there stuff and finally last pic is showing everyone up on the Eldo Deck watching with a birds eye view. Team rider and 13 year old Aaron Blunck won the whole thing, spinning 7's both ways and his cork 7 truckdriver to mute grab. Keep checking back for more pics later. Be sure to come to Crested Butte, CO next year for "Big Air On Elk" on March 12, 2011.
See you there!
