Countdown to Opening Day: Ahrens Doublebacks Box Rock


Welcome to our Countdown to Opening Day series!  During the 30 days leading up to opening day at Crested Butte Mountain Resort, we will be featuring a clip or edit from winter in the West Elks.  This is video 1 of 30.

Our opening clip comes from Dubsatch Collective skier Leo Ahrens during the 2009 Junior U.S. Extreme Freeskiing Championships.  The video is very poor quality (its a video of a video), but you get the idea.

Ahrens was featured in the year’s MSP Films movie, Superheroes of Stoke.  If you haven’t already, check out the Dubsatch Collective.  The boys recently released their short film Baker, and are dropping the teaser for their Alaska short film this Tuesday.
