Griffin Post just won the Subaru US Extreme Freeskiing Championships in Crested Butte. Post notched a pair of 47-point runs (on a 50-point scale) to edge defending champion Cliff Bennett by eight-tenths of a point, reports espn.com.

Sick Bird winner and fourth-place finisher Mark Filippini took full advantage, sticking a pair of 50-foot-plus drops into tight trees; others threw back flips and front flips off the famous Cheeseburger rock.

“With the way the snow is, as they say, go big or go home,” Filippini said.
An avalanche warning remained in effect for the surrounding Crested Butte backcountry, and CB patrollers threw more than 350 pounds of dynamite to control the resort’s famed Extreme Limits terrain on Saturday alone.
