Athlete Name: Matthew Evans

Freeride Program & Head Coach: Crested Butte Mountain Sports Team – Woody Lindenmeyr

Woody Lindenmeyr –   “Matt is one of the most dedicated skiers I have seen.  He is out there enjoying the sport every chance he gets, which is 6-7 days a week.  It is difficult to get him to take a day off.  He is a complete skier too.  He can ski the park and pipe, tear up bumps, race a course.  There are no bad ski days for Matt, but of course the steeps, cliffs, and powder are where he is most comfortable and happiest.  It has been a privilege to coach him the past 5 years.”
