Drumroll, please. The #YGSnowContest results are in. @miles_falcon, @jadynchomlack, @qooper and wildcard @jack_macdougall are all headed to Whistler with @austensweetin. They’ll spend a day in the park and a day in the backcountry, and one of them will win $10K — we’ll bring you live updates.
Here they are: your 2017 #YGSkiContest finalists. @sam_lobinsky, @konnorralph and @thib_magnin made it through voting and @simon.hillis was handpicked by @sammycarlson1 as a wildcard. All of them just arrived in @whistlerblackcomb for the final and one of them is leaving with $10k — you’ll see it all go down in our stories.
Today, as the community comes together to celebrate Pierre Agnes, we at Boardriders would like to take a moment to honor him. As a leader, he was inspirational. As a friend, he was selfless. As a visionary, he was relentless. As a surfer, he was gifted. And as an individual, he was indescribable. Pierre dedicated his life to making the world a better place to be a boardrider. That’s his legacy. And for that, we thank him.
Imagine yourself here… If you’re one of the #YGSnowContest finalists, you won’t have to use your imagination — it’ll all be real. We’re taking four kids to Whistler with @austensweetin and you have the final say in who it’ll be. Hit our Instagram page in six hours to send a few kids on a dream trip by voting.
Dream, meet reality. After hundreds of entries from all over the world, @sammycarlson1 has selected his top 8 #YGSkiContest semi-finalists. Check back here tomorrow to see who made the cut and to vote for the finalists. Public voting will send 3 kids on a dream trip to Whistler to ski with Sammy and have the chance to win $10K. Oh, and hopefully score some conditions like this while they’re at it.
Passion. That’s what defines us. That’s what pushes us forward. That’s what built the lifestyle around the mountain and the wave. As our leader, Pierre Agnes has an unrivalled amount of passion for Quiksilver and everything we stand for. He’s made an immeasurable impact on our brand, our culture and our community. Now, we take a moment to send our thoughts, prayers, love and good energy to Pierre and his family.
