CRESTED BUTTE, CO – A group of 20 of the best local park skiers and riders came out to downtown Crested Butte to compete in this year’s Big Air on Elk Ave presented by the Colorado Freeskier. The Big Air on Elk event features a huge kicker build in the middle of town. Fans lined both sides of the street, climbed atop roofs for the chance to witness freestyle moves against the Colorado sky.

Young local Crested Butte skier Matt Evans was throwing down representing for the Mountain Sports Team and the hometown crowd. Snowboarder Brady Farr was hitting the jump with style, and making me want to get out from behind the lens and test my skills.. Maybe next year 🙂

My friend Josh Gallen, a local Crested Butte rider took a hard slam early in the comp and wasn’t able to continue. Hopefully, Josh makes a full recovery as he has a big future ahead of him on snow.
