“Backcountry skiing in Crested Butte was a new experience for me.  Before moving here I had never really thought of the backcountry as a place to push my skiing or really get into burlier terrain.  As I explored the surrounding mountains here, I realized the incredible potential for hard-charging skiing.  Long lines, deep snowpack on all aspects, and relatively easy access via snowmobile and skins make the mountains around Crested Butte a true skier's paradise.  I am stoked to be skiing on the SI&I system from Cast because it allows me complete freedom of this terrain.  The low tech toe piece offers a beautiful, efficient stride while skinning, and the SI&I means I am confident in my equipment to have my back, both on the way up and the way down.”
