24 women & 55 men made their way down Staircase for Day 1 of the Subaru US Extreme Freeskiing Championships at Crested Butte. The steep rocky terrain made for interesting line choices, a few spectacular bails, more than a few hang ups and a lot of solid skiing! (article by Kasie Stroshin)

Most of the women opted to take a route down a section of the venue called The Handrail which consists of multiple pillow airs. Canadian Tatum Monod smoothly made her way down this zone sending a nice air at the bottom landing her in first place after Day 1. Rebecca Selig was the only girl to hit a zone called Body Bag, aptly named due to it’s super technical & steep features with a large air into trees at the bottom. She sent it big landing her just behind Tatum in second place. Ashley Maxfield of Snowbird rounded out the top three.

On the men’s side local’s dominated with Alex Norton of Crested Butte taking third just behind Tom Runcie also of Crested Butte. The win for Day 1 however went to Lars Chickering-Ayers of Mad River Glen who continues to dominate the FWT. Sickbird nominations went out to John Lange for his unique point-it style through Body Bag, to Rob Dickinson for threading the needle through Body Bag with a lot of controlled acid drops, to Mark Welgos for tearing a strip through Body Bag and to Randy Evans for his lincoln loop off Dead Bob’s log.

There were also some spectacular crashes. Nick Fountain threw a big front flip on the bottom flank but couldn’t quite get it around, blowing up in the moguls below. Kent Hyden layed out a huge back flip off RVA rock but blew up upon landing and tumbled down the chute below. Mark Filippini took one of the biggest lines off Body Bag but unfortunately ate it into the trees below. All in all, it was a great show!
