Drew Petersen sent us this update from his busy winter this time in Crested Butte the East Wall and more Snow:

In the past two weeks I have been skiing a lot and I am getting more excited for the coming competition season.

I went down to Crested Butte with the Team Summit Big Mountain Team on December 28 and December 29. We heard that some of the better terrain was opening, so we figured that it would be a worthwhile short trip. On the first day we inspected the competition venues for the upcoming U.S. Extreme Freeskiing Championships in February. It was good to go look at the venues and start to prepare for the first stop of the Junior Freeskiing Tour. On our second day they received 9 inches of new snow. This made for a great day. In the afternoon, Teocalli Bowl opened for the first time this season. We skied waist deep powder. Teo Bowl was a great way to cap off the short trip.

Here is a picture that I took of my friend and teammate George Rodney. Unfortunately, I did not have anyone take pictures of me in Crested Butte.
