Episode 3 of the Connections Web Series – featuring Marshall Thomson and Donny Roth – was filmed in Crested Butte, Colorado. Uphill skiing has played a central role in the local community ever since a brave mail carrier named Al Johnson shuttled letters over the area’s many high mountain passes in the late 1800’s. Suffice to say, the gear is a lot more advanced these days, but the routine nature of uphill ski travel still remains.
