A ski industry veteran across all mediums—from coaching, to organizing women’s ski trips, to writing to leading ski tests—Crabtree is a steward of Elan’s mission to elevate the skiing experience through the lifestyle and people that make up the good times of skiing.

“It’s pretty hard not to have a good time when you combine ripping women on ripping skis at an ripping mountain,” said Crabtree. “Crested Butte has the perfect blend of ski town culture and big mountain terrain to create an unforgettable weekend.”
