Living Large in a Tiny Yurt in Whitefish, Montana

Sean and Mollie Busby live in this yurt outside the mountain town of Whitefish, Montana, which at first glance you'd think would consist of a crotchety wood stove drying out a rack of hanging, smelly ski socks and cots placed along the wall.

Zell was offered a VIP wildcard for the competition about a month ago, and after spending more time on the snow this year, Zell decided she would compete in a freeride competition for the first time in two decades.

Yikes, Skier Backflips Straight Onto his Face

Backflip to a yard sale—not the most ideal combination to huck off a steep kicker. Unfortunately for Fabian Omne, that’s exactly what happened when he tried to go big at the Scandinavian Big Mountain Championships in Riksgränsen, Sweden. Watch as the Swiss skier takes the fall straight to the face. Ouch. Thankfully, he was able to walk away and is currently recovering from the crash.
