At the 17th annual Powder Awards, held in Breckenridge, Colorado, on December 8, 2016, JF Houle won the award for Full Throttle. This is the second year in a row that the award went to a street skier.
“I am a loose canon,” said Houle. “I find a zone and no one can talk me out of it. I’ll do anything I can till I can’t walk to get the shot and the thing I want. It’s in my heart and bigger than I can understand and makes me do what I do.”
