25 years of CB’s Freeskiing Championships
The Crested Butte Freeskiing Championships turns 25 years old this week. This iconic competition has hosted some of the raddest skiers ever to grace the sport. Shane McConkey and Seth Morrison both spent time on the podium its early years while big names like George Rodney and Angel Collinson made podium appearances more recently.
Upon its conception Crested Butte became the first resort in the lower 48 states to hold a freekskiing competition. With technical, steep and rocky terrain and its long history, this event has quite the reputation among free skiers.
Stay tuned next week as I will be providing a full recap of the event.
Also enjoy some highlights from over the years!
