We received a lot of great photos from great riders and the jury had a tough time deciding, as every single member of the jury had a winner in mind. But in the end it's the overall vote that counts. We have three winners that will go heliskiing at White Wilderness Heliskiing with the legend - Glen Plake (check him out in our latest podcast with host Mike Powell and Glen Plake)
