Tweet Your Face Off With Colby West

Note to all mountains holding competitions in the future. If you start to hear “Got the Life” by Korn, and see a dragon coming over the horizon. Fear not. That’s just Colby James West coming to town. We talked to the world class skier and funnyman on Friday.

When we first saw Colby James West this winter, he had adopted the character of Marty Lempkin and was pitching the “Epic Pass” all over Youtube. Several months (and about ten personas) later, Colby has just wrapped up another season on the Winter Dew Tour and sat down to Tweet His Face Off with us.

A man of many talents, Colby suggests that he could be a sketch comedian, a sprinter, a running back, or even a… bullfighter? That might not be necessary though, as Colby’s been making quite a name for himself in the world of freeskiing. His big breakthrough came at Winter X Games three years ago, where he reached the podium in slopestyle. Colby’s biggest highlights this season have come in the superpipe, where he reached finals at Winter X Games and the Snowbasin stop of the Winter Dew Tour. Keep reading to learn what the man behind the internet hit “My Friend Is A Pro” has in store for Jossi Wells (Jossi Wells! Jossi Wells!).
