Celebrating its 16th anniversary, the annual Powder Awards & Reader Poll returned to downtown Salt Lake City on Dec 5th for its third consecutive year in Utah. Recognized by the greater skiing community, industry, and athletes as the only award show in the sport, the 16th annual production, hosted at The Depot, witnessed the biggest names in snowsports on the red carpet and stage. To an audience of over 1,000 athletes, winners were transformed from nominees to icons. Consumers not lucky enough to experience the live show were not left out with up to the minute social news being distributed through the entire Powder network with over 1 million video views in the first 24 hours. See all the action and recaps from the show PowderAwards.com.
Powder To The People Tour
After almost a decade of rest the Powder To The People Tour (P2P) roars back to life in Spring 2016. Established as the original grassroots activation in skiing, the tour stays true to its roots with four stops along the Western U.S. to celebrate the end of the season in proper fashion, pond skimming of course! The Pond Skim: defined as…to skim is to ski over something quickly or to glance over a pool of liquid in proper dress and style.
Hosted at a select resort location, each stop on the tour serves as an official qualifier for the 1st Annual Pond Skimming World Cup Championships. One King and Queen from each location will be crowned to present their hometown as an automatic bid into the Champs, hosted in Banff National Park at Sunshine Village Resort on May 23rd 2016. www.Powder2ThePeople.com
