Axl bonenberger takes home two golds at nationals
APRIL 4, 2015
The medals just keep coming for the Albritton Skis Team, and with a few more events coming up, odds are the influx isn’t over. Just last weekend, Axl Bonenberger, a 10 year old ripper, and Albritton Skis rider from Breckenridge, CO placed first in the both the USASA National Slopestyle and halfpipe competitions held at Copper Mountain.
He took home the gold in the Slopestyle competition after throwing down a left 360 mute grab, a right 360 japan grab, a left 720 tail grab, a right foot rail slide, wrapping it all up with a right foot rail slide front 270 out. After stomping the Slopestyle competition, he headed over to the halfpipe and threw down yet another first place run consisting of a right side alley-oop to a left side alley-oop, a left side 540 to a right side 540 straight air, throwing in a hand plant 180 at the end of his run for good measure.

austin porzak sends it DOWN the first flatiron
MARCH 1, 2015
Team rider, Austin Porzak has done in again folks! During his most recent ski endeavor, Austin managed to pull off the unthinkable, and ski the first flatiron from top to bottom. In doing so, he became the first person to successfully ski this unbelievably difficult line.
"My first ski I was only able to ski the top 200 feet because the snow kept blowing out so I climbed back out. Today I sent it top to bottom. This is the greatest ski descent of my life. I literally waited my entire life for these conditions." - Austin Porzak
Austin is constantly out in the Colorado back country, pursuing his dreams and pushing the limits on his trusted 189 Tomichi in every possible way that he can. If the recent conditions keep up for the remainder of the season, Austin will undoubtedly accomplish his goal of skiing all 58 of the 14,000 foot peaks in CO. Having done 54 of the 58,there's no stopping this guy now. Congrats, Austin! We can't wait to see what's next.
Check out his bio here to see more great shots of this descent and many others.
