This past Saturday, February 15, 2020, was a beautiful Colorado blue-jean day for dozens upon dozens of skiers to gather in their best denim at Arapahoe Basin. With the intention of setting the world record for the most jean skiers in one place—technically, there’s never been an official record— Spencer Harkins of Pit Viper set the tone of day early, adding more skiers in their dungarees to his ridiculous crew every run. By 2 p.m., 80 denim-clad two-plankers came in their jeans to the top of the beloved Pallavicini lift to wiggle and giggle down Grizzly Road to Ramrod. A sea of denim, neon and perma-smiles overflowed The Beach at the independent ski area, epitomizing the fun-loving spirit of skiing. Following the on-slope shenanigans, the party migrated over to RMU in Breckenridge for Cold Snack deals from Montucky and a roarin’ aprés to cap off the outrageous, record-breaking day.
