Winner of the GoPro Line of the Winter contest goes big and scores bigger

Léo Taillefer must be feeling pretty lucky right now. The French pro skier, well known for his GPSY FEELIN videos and big air style, recently notched himself a $20,000 payday as the winner of the GoPro Line of the Winter contest. His winning video, filmed last March, features a couple gigantic airs and a fun-looking run through a canyon at his home mountain of Val d’Isere, France. The contest was open to all skiers and snowboarders and had the simple goal of finding the best run last winter, all filmed on a GoPro in one continuous shot. Taillefer’s original video garnered over a half million views and was a clear standout amongst the hundreds of entries. The team at GoPro surprised Taillefer with the news of his win via Skype.
