Ripping big mountain lines requires preparation, skills, a certain degree of fitness, and some intense concentration when you drop in. However, once an athlete like Joe Turner points his tips over the edge, and lets gravity take over, all that energy gets channeled into one thing: the flow state. For him and others like ski legend Dan Egan, that rings particularly true when ripping the unrivaled alpine steeps at Big Sky, on classic lines like the Big Couloir, Liberty Bowl, or Lenin, and the chase for it never ceases.
Skiers are seekers. Whether young or old, when that one thing is discovered, the search becomes a driving force in their life. They’re not satisfied with that one little touch, they’re going to do it again.
It’s not just big mountain lines at Big Sky. On the other hand, Jack Lovely channels that same flow state into lapping big jumps in the terrain park. Whether young or old, all that experience that state of ultimate freedom can share in it together.
