Brave or Just Plain Crazy? – Crushing Colorado’s Rocky Backcountry

The avalanche conditions in Colorado are some of the worst in North America. Because of this, not many riders venture out of bounds. But on this day in early March 2016, three riders and a filmer decided to go out and test their luck. Their ambitious, questionably dangerous endeavor paid off when they scored some of the deepest turns of their season. Besides for some awkward speed ramping that was applied to a few of the video’s clips, this edit is a good watch and does well to show the kind of terrain that Colorado’s Rocky Mountain backcountry has to offer.
