Penfield & Boddington stomp Subaru Freeride Series Final in Crested Butte

February 16th, 2014 by

Under socked-in skies, and with fresh powder coating the extremes, the Subaru Freeride Series Final went off on the steeps of Crested Butte Mountain. Canadian rider Jonathan Penfield and Crested Butte’s own Mary Boddington stomped fluid, highly technical lines down Hourglass, an area of the mountain that opened solely to host the SFS finals.

Fighting to earn qualification points and secure a spot on the Freeride World Tour, riders battled the steeps of Staircase during Friday’s semifinals, 10 men and 5 women earning themselves spots in Saturday’s finals. When it came time, Boddington stepped up to lay down a strong, clean run, nailing a big air at the bottom of her line to earn the high score of 153.00. Penfield, hot off of taking first in semifinals, pointed it straight down The Handrail, slashing through series of pillow drops in the Bed Bath and Beyond section of the venue, finishing off his run by stomping an air off of the bottom cliffs of the Bermuda Triangle.

Penfields combined score, a 171.00, placed him squarely atop the men’s podium. Abe Greenspan, who took second place, earned himself Backcountry.com’s ‘Sickbird’ award for dropping a massive cliff.
