The FWT has already been to La Parva, Chile, and Revelstoke, BC. Now some of the best big-mountain athletes in the world are descending on Telluride, Colorado, for the third stop of the Freeskiing World Tour. Here's a video preview of this weekend's event.

Known for it's steeps, Crested Butte houses such aptly named runs as "Dead End Chutes," "Staircase," and "Hot Rocks," as well as the US Freeskiing World Championships.  If that isn't enough, the Body Bag Glades should be. The glades as well as Dead Man's Chute are located in the resort's "Extreme Limits," terrain that should be considered out-of bounds if the resort didn't want to boost its acreage. The Body Bag Glades drop 275 feet at 55 degrees, so you'll have to stick the landing if you want to live to tell about it.
