Few events can pull athletes world wide off the slopes and away from comps and filming to the chilly, sub-zero temps of Park City, Utah. The 13th Annual Powder Video Awards was the event that did just that.
I was lucky enough to not only attend the event, but host the red carpet for the live stream of the show. A perfect venue for my Perfect Moment leather puffy jacket, the glitterati of the ski world mixed and mingled with the glamour of the Sundance Film Festival, coming together to celebrate all the accomplishments in ski movies of the past year year.
Sharing drinks and interviews with the likes of Candide Thovex, Tom Wallisch, Michelle Parker and so many more, it was a night of many memories and many accomplishments. The star of the evening was Candide Thovex where he was repeatedly praised for his movie Few Words taking home the awards for Full Throttle, Best Documentary, Best Cinematography, and Best Male Performance. Some of my other favorite moments included friend and ski pal, Michelle Parker, taking home Best Female Performance and the quirky, perfectly soundtracked, street-style ski film, Sunny by Level 1 winning their first Movie of the Year award.
It was a trip full of story sharing, celebration, fun drinks, fast groomers at The Canyons with the Powder Magazine staff, and lots of fancy mountain strutting! Now it is time to go out, ski and film, all with the hope of one of those trophies going home in my pocket next year.
Cheers and happy powder hunting.
