Countdown to Opening Day: Splitboarding the CB BC


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 24 of 30.

With one week left in the countdown, we have Austin Gibney and friends in the Crested Butte backcountry. ¬†“Splitboarding is like picking up a hot chick; it’s a little more work, but it’s definitely worth it. And it’s not all tracked out,” explains Austin in this part from the “Analogy” series. ¬†After watching this edit, we know this must be true.

Featuring locals: Austin Gibney, Andrew Buergin, Tom Kelly, Mary Boddington, and Brady Farr.
