New Year’s Eve with Alex Schlopy

Alex Schlopy spent New Year’s Eve in Crested Butte, Colorado with SCOTT teammate Brandon Clabaugh sessioning the Crested Butte New Years Eve rail jam.

Alex: At first I wasn’t sure about the set-up due to the ice coating on top, but by comp time the park crew dialed the rail in and exterminated the ice, making for some epic rails. Then it was our turn to give the crowd, including Bill Murray, what they came to see. After the jam we waited around in the sub zero temps for the judges to tally up the scores. Brandon and I managed to take the top two spots. All in all it was a fun comp and I was stoked to nail all the tricks I wanted, and to see Brandon slay the comp as well. Over the next few days I’ll be in Crested Butte’s backcountry, then it will be off to Breck to start training for the US Open. Happy New Years!
