Red Rocks Amphitheater, one of the most recognizable music venues in North America, is no stranger to people getting radical there *cues up Pretty Lights or The Glitch Mob music*. A local gentleman from Lakewood, Nick Gianoutsos, decided it was a better idea to skip the lift lines at A-Basin and shred his way down the amphitheater grandstands instead.

"There was just enough snow to get a continuous run. The thick wet, snow held to the edge of the benches and allowed me to make turns. I kept thinking, 'Whatever you do, don't fall!'"

Inspired by a group of skiers that were able to "shred" the stands back in 2006, he was thrilled to check this off his bucket-list saying, "We've gone to a lot of concerts at Red Rocks, Film on the Rocks, we've run at Red Rocks and yesterday got to ski at Red Rocks." Nick is no stranger to getting out on the real mountains and shredding, he's recently gotten into ski mountaineering and conquered a few 14ers in the past year including Grays Peak.
