Buttermilk Park Session Preview
by Joel Muzzey
While all you internet shred nerds were watching the US Open run its course, we were out at Buttermilk in Aspen, Colorado aka home of the XGames. It was a week of perfect Spring Break weather for the second of our five Park Sessions. The crew assembled for this session came from all over the country. We had Tyler Flanagan from Mammoth, Alex Rodway from Maine, Bear Mountain’s Scotty Vine, Breckenridge local Madison Ellsworth, and nomad Mason Aguirre as well as a pair of Minnesota rail aficionados Brandon Larson and Dan Liedahl otherwise known Danimals. Buttermilk’s 2-mile long park laps are dotted with everything from polejams to Jersey barriers to 60-foot booters, and of course that massive pipe. It was the perfect place to spend a week screwing around with a big ol’ rat pack. Sun up to sunset, the crew didn’t stop until the free tickets expired. Stay tuned for full Park Sessions video coming Fall 2012.
