The North Face Breakthrough Performance
Parker White
After Dark
Level 1 Productions

We knew he could ski park and urban, but who knew Parker White has such style in big mountains and deep powder? In Level 1 Productions' After Dark, the East Coast jibster sent a message that he is a force with his first-ever Powder Award.

Like every one else who won this award, White is officially on the radar of ski film fans. Former Breakthrough winners Sean Pettit and Sage Cattabriga-Alosa both followed up their Breakthrough years with Best Male Performance awards. In fact, Ingrid Backstrom did, too, but she won Best Female Performance the same year that she won Breakthrough Performer.

White proves he is in the same category with arguably the most versatile segment in ski cinematography in 2011-12. From rails, to park jumps, to mini-golf lines, and urban jibs, the enigmatic White is here to stay.
