The 25 best Instagram photos from #FreeskierFest

March 18th, 2013 by

Plainly put, #FreeskierFest is a blast. Between testing hundreds of next year’s skis, the on-hill shenanigans, the après parties, family dinners and late night debauchery, there’s hardly a dull moment. We realize most of you are only able to follow along with the action via the web, and so this year we challenged our ski testers and brand reps to blow up the #FreeskierFest hashtag via Instagram, Twitter, Vine, etc, all in the hopes of giving you a great behind the scenes look at what goes down during our annual ski tests. We even went so far as to offer champagne to the individuals who posted the best photos—as voted on by the Freeskier staff.

All in all, we saw 285 photos shared during our stay in Aspen tagged #FreeskierFest. Of those, these are our favorite 25, in no particular order.
