Posted  March 17, 2012  by  1. Ed Dujardin

The first weekend of March I joined a large group of Crested Butte skiers to go compete at the Salomon Extreme Freeride Championships in Taos, NM.  Having never been to Taos, I was delighted to find a mountain littered with spines, cliffs, and great snow conditions.  Taos has enjoyed a relatively good snow year, and […]
