We can tell you which gets our vote, but tune into a couple of videos from Sunday and tell us what you think. Lift access, PBR and crowds vs. touring and skiing pow, perhaps a hair too aggressively with plentiful shrubbery/rocks. Cheers to all who are out getting some turns in this October!
Dav is a badass. Having skied 67 out of the 69 14ers in the lower 48, winning the 2001 Freeskiing World Championship along and winning the 1996 World Extreme Championships Chris Davenport has cemented himself as one of the sports icons. We caught up with freeskier/mountaineer and got his thoughts on music, his go-to backcountry snack and the wildest thing he’s seen at a ski movie premier.
We just came across a bunch of CUFST (University of Colorado Freestyle Ski Team) edits and thought we’d throw them all in one place. Lots of Berthoud Pass footage in here for the Colorado crowd. Is there anything better than mixing the CU college experience with tons of powder skiing?
Chris Davenport takes us through his backcountry setups, from mid-winter to summer missions. As Dav has been working on skiing all of Colorado’s 13′ers (aka “The Centennial Peaks Project”), he naturally saves time by handling part of the gear discussion while on a trail back out of the mountains from a day of skiing.
Every once in a while we see a video that is a total win thanks to some great narration. This would be a victory in that category. I’m not quite sure why this gentleman’s articulate and thorough narration of skiing Breckenridge’s double black diamond “Devil’s Crotch” run made me laugh so much, but it’s definitely worth a watch (audio required obviously):
Although majority of this POV may have been shot during “low tide”, Rob, Tom and company still know how to have a good time. For those that aren’t full on ski nerds like us, let us remind you both Dickinson and Runcie are freeskiing world tour athletes, all around rippers and some of the best humans you’ll find on this here earth. Trust us. We know from experience. (yes, yes we)
