Northeastern Skiers on Tour: Dylan Crossman

Our friend Dylan Crossman grew up skiing in Vermont’s Green Mountains and Mad River Glen, and after moving out west to explore his love for skiing, he went on to dominate the competitive telemark (and later the alpine) big-mountain/freeskiing scene – winning the US Telemark Extremes on FIVE times, and in 2008, skiing away with a 1st place finish at the US Alpine Freeskiing Extremes at Snowbird, UT. Aside from his competitive skiing accomplishments, he’s simply one of the most talented skiers we’ve ever shared turns with…and he loves few things more than a great skiing adventure. Dylan nearly joined us this past spring on a pedal-powered skiing adventure through Norway’s Arctic Alps, and we know it’s only a matter of time before we connect on another big adventure in the mountains.

Now, with the season winding up, Dylan has wrapped up his summer-season work as an arborist in Vermont, and he is already making the most of the abundant snow falling out west. While reconnecting with his favorite stashes in and around Alta, Utah, Dylan’s has also been ticking off a few tours on his own, personal must-ski list, like the Suicide Chute on Utah’s Mount Superior. Here’s a little post about his adventure last weekend on Dylan’s blog – LINK. And here’s some footage Dylan assembled that captures his skiing – LINK.
