Local FWT Athletes Fundraiser at Butte 66 on Friday, Dec 5th


Hey Gunnison Valley! We have 2 amazing women representing our little part of Colorado on the Freeride World Tour this year.  Frequent visitors to our site are no strangers to Francesca Pavillard-Cain and Mary Boddington’s recent exploits and successes in the big mountain freeride arena.

They have been helped out by local companies like the Secret Stash, the Power Stop, CBMR, The Talk of the Town, Bonez, the Hammer, and larger companies like Giro, Neversummer, and Rossignol.  If you are missing that last piece of gear for the season their are pretty good odds you might win a helmet or goggles!

If you can’t make the event and want to donate anyway, you can check out their GoFundMe page. Check out Fran’s latest edit and Mary’s role in the Follow None Vision Quest ’14 entry:
