A lot of fun was had yesterday afternoon at the Aaron Blunck Big Bag Invitational at Crested Butte Mountain Resort.
As we’ve reported, CBMR has purchased an air bag for training and for tubing.  Yesterday was the first time the resort showcased the Bagjump to the public with skiers and riders.  CBMR and the Crested Butte Snowsports Foundation hosted the event as a fundraiser for Aaron Blunck’s competition season.  The crew included Aaron Blunck, Dave Zweig, Ed Dujardin, Dave Sugnet, Polly McGrane, Alex Wakenight, Thomas Taaca, Kyle Anderson, Patrick Curvin, and Kai Sherman.  We were able to watch the athletes progress their skills in a matter of minutes as they kept hiking back up to hit the jump again.  Check out the gallery and get out there!
