See the Stoke Crested Butte Has to Offer in ‘Meeting of the Lines’

Take four pro skiers and snowboarders and put them together in the high country of Colorado. What do you get? This epic backcountry performance.

Big features, big air, big snow, big lines. These four pros aren’t messing around. For a full week, they took on the mountains and backcountry of Crested Butte, Colo., via the skin track and a few snowcats. In fact, they even set up a gap jump over a snowcat — just ’cause they can.

And don’t worry, they’ve got drones and GoPros going, so you can enjoy all the jumps, face shots, and party laps from every angle, including the skiers’ POV.

Forget zoom calls — this is exactly the kind of “meeting” we’d all be happy to take.
