Add one more option to the list of potential ski shreddin’ spots (in addition to Keystone, Mammoth, Loveland, Copper Mountain, Wolf Creek and others…). Tomorrow morning, Breckenridge will open with a triple line of jumps, tested and approved by the most stoked man in skiing, Bobby Brown. He could hardly contain himself, saying “The jumps are money! They’re a little bigger than other years and really floaty. And the line flows really well from the jumps into the rails. There’s tons of snow, so it’s just going to get better.”
He was hanging out with Johnny Decesare of Poorboyz productions and pretty much hung up on me, sad face, but I’m sure they’re working hard on something special for your video pleasure. Austyn Williams, Communication Coordinator at Breckenridge, was kind enough to let you all know what to expect this year, and each year on opening day, “It’s important for it to be open with a park and our triple line because Breckenridge is known for having the best park all year—so we strive to have that same product opening day. That is the standard we want to provide for all our guests.”
And it’s not just the average skier who will be at Breck over the next couple of weeks. Expect a veritable who’s who of competition slopestyle skiers rolling around Breck. “The athletes are hungry to train with Dew Tour on the cusp—three weeks away—and we want to help those athletes get on snow as soon as possible,” explains Williams.
Lifts turn at 9 a.m. tomorrow morning, with a total of the Colorado Superchair and 5 Chair serving five runs. Go get ‘em Freeskier readers!
