Here is an update from Ian Borgesen and the Junior Extreme’s in Crested Butte:

I just returned from the 20th annual Subaru U.S Extreme Freeskiing Championships in Crested Butte, CO.  I had an awesome time skiing down there with my ski team, Team Summit.  Here is a video of my runs:

I ended up placing second overall in the men?s 15 ? 17 category after having the second highest scoring runs both days.  My good friend, teammate and fellow Faction rider Drew Peterson won the event!

The podium from left to right: Tanner Cabana (3rd), Drew Peterson (1st), Ian Borgeson (2nd).

I also won the first annual Tecnica Blizzard Free Mountain Award.  This is awarded to the best skier both on and off the hill.

Both Drew and my skiing at this event is dedicated to my father, Leif Borgeson, who recently passed away.  For more information please visit Forever Missed.  I will be heading up to Crystal Mountain, WA soon for the next competition on the Junior Freeskiing Tour so check back soon for more updates!
