Salomon Extreme Freeride Championship Taos, NM

Conditions in Taos could not have been better for the freeride competition this season. After a long drive on snowy roads through quite a blizzard we awoke our first morning to 15 plus inches of fresh snow! Holy face shots!

Max going deep on inspection day!

Kyle Koenig, really?

The competition venues could not have been better and the weather cooperated as well. Telluride Big Mountains skiers, represented with style!

With incredible terrain, often good snow and some of the best Mexican food in the country, Taos has become a favorite event for the Telluride BMT.

Congratulations to all the athletes who attended this event! The skiing was impressive across the board! Huge props to Xanthe Demas who won the jr. female division and Greg Hope who placed 3rd in the jr. men. No doubt a lot of fun was had by all!
