Tim Durtschi, Way of Life, Teton Gravity Research
Durtschi stepped up his game this year, pulling off impressive tricks in the backcountry and making a name for himself as a big mountain slayer. He filmed with two different companies throughout the season--TGR and Field Productions--but his AK-heavy segment from TGR gave Durtschi the nod over a stacked field of nominees.
