The Elk Avenue Big Air competition is an annual event on the main street in the town of Crested Butte. Tons and tons of snow is piled up and shaped by snowcats to form a large jump. A runway is also layed down so the snowmobiles that tow the snowboarders and skiers in can get up to the necessary 60mph. Nearly 2,000 turn out for this exciting event every March.
