The Colorado Freeride Championships rapped up today in Snowmass after athletes patiently waited for heavy snowfall and winds to settle down after a delayed start to the competition on both Friday and Saturday.  There was an upside to the weather as athletes fresh snow to compete in. Below are the top three athletes in each field. 

Men’s ski finals went down Sunday in Snowmass.  Due to weather each athlete was given one run as their final run to lay it all out on the line.  The snowboard finals were held on Saturday, also with the competitors getting only one run.
