Scrolling through Austin’s Instagram feed brings #skiporn to a whole new level. Check out videos of him hucking ridiculous cliff bands in East Vail or photos of global ski-mountaineering expeditions to the Matterhorn and Antarctica. In early June, Austin completed an eight-year quest to ski all 58 of Colorado’s 14,000-foot mountains. And perhaps craziest of all, in March, after waiting nearly five years for ideal snow conditions, he notched the first known ski descent of First Flatiron in Boulder.
