Candide Thovex
The unassuming skier from La Clusaz, France, grew up skiing in the French Alps. He spent many years in the competition scene, competing in everything from moguls to halfpipe to the FWT. The past few years, he's focused on filming and releasing video content, reminding viewers that his day job is way more fun--and gnarly--than yours. He follows up his Powder Awards Best Male Performance from his 2013 film, Few Words, with this award.
