Insane couloir at Crested Butte, Colorado


Jon Peot and Matt Philippi shredding down a couloir in Crested Butte, Colorado.

Crested Butte is a ski town just south of the infamous Aspen. The former coal mining town is now called ‘the last great Colorado ski town’. Known for offering extreme terrain, the mountain is considered one of the birthplaces of freeskiing with some very advanced trails and the famous extreme limits of the North Face and Headwall.

Crested Butte has also been called home for many revolutionary skiers such as Seth Morrison and Wendy Fisher, as well as extreme sports film production company Matchstick Productions.

This shot is from the movie ‘Because’, which features some incredible sequences in mainland US, Alaska, Canada and Japan. To watch the whole movie it’s right here :
