Countdown to Opening Day: Big Air on Elk


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 26 of 30.

Big Air on Elk is the annual big air competition on Elk Avenue.  The whole town comes out to watch competitors get towed in by snowmobiles to hit the gap.  It is always a fun evening.  Video by Gunnison-Crested Butte.
