Posted By: The Ski Channel on September 9, 2009 11:44 am

Home to five stellar terrain parks and four halfpipes, Breckenridge always attracts the best skiers and boarders in the industry.

The lineup for the 2009-2010 season includes decorated ski sensations Colby West, Bobby Brown, Tanner Rainville, Keri Herman and Duncan Adams. New additions on the roster include X Games gold winner Anna Segal and video editor Nick Martini.

Colby, a double threat in the 2009 X Games, took bronze in the Slopstyle and finished fifth in the Superpipe. He also ripped up in the Dew Tour Halfpipe, taking home a third place medal. 

Tanner’s wicked style earned him a bronze medal in the 2008 North American Open Slopestyle and eighth place in the 2008 X Games Slopestyle, among other accomplishments.

Over his extensive career, 17 year old Bobby Brown took gold in the Dew Tour Slopestyle, sixth place in the X Games and just this past month placed first in both the New Zealand Open Slopestyle and NZ Games Big Air.

Keri Herman is no stanger to the podium. Her accomplishments in the past season include a bronze medal in the Breckenridge Dew Tour, a fourth place finish at the X Games and a silver mdeal in the Laax European Open. In the previous season, Keri dominated and won gold in the Aspen Open Slopestyle, the North American Open Slopestyle, the Cardrona Games Big Air, and a slew of other events.

At just 16 years old, Duncan Adams already boasts a bronze medal in the Breckenridge Dew Tour halfpipe, fourth place overall in the Dew Tour and sixth at the X Games and US Open.

A native Australian and recent addition to the Breck team, Anna Segal has certainly carved out an impressive career of her own in the US. This past month, Anna took home gold in the New Zealand Games and silver at the New Zealand Open. She won gold at the 2009 X Games and a silver medal at the Breckenridge Dew Tour. 

Owner of his own ski movie production company, Nick Martini may be better known for his ski footage edits than his actual skiing. However, Nick did finish sixth in the Dew Tour Slopestyle, fifth in the rail jam and tenth for the overall Dew Tour. We will definitely be keeping on eye on these up-and-comers!
