Nominees Announced for TransWorld SNOWboarding’s 17th Annual Riders’ Poll Awards

RIDERS-POLL-SAVE-THE-DATE-1280

The biggest night in snowboarding is back for the 17th edition! For over a decade and a half, we've polled the professional snowboarding community to find their picks for the best riders of the year. With the exception of the Legend Award, which our staff chooses, and the Climate Activist Award, which we work with Protect Our Winters to decide, these awards are completely determined by the opinions of over 100 pro riders. While TransWorld SNOWboarding hosts the awards, the winners are truly a reflection of peer acknowledgement—the highest honor any rider can receive.

This season, veterans like Arthur Longo, Chris Grenier, Eero Niemela, Scott Blum, Kimmy Fasani, and Pat Moore all voted alongside up and comers including Jake Kuzyk, Blake Paul, and Ozzy Henning.

To see the best riders of the year crowned, join us on Friday, January 29 at the Ogden Theater in Denver, Colorado for the 17th Annual Riders' Poll Awards hosted by the legendary Peter Line and Eddie Wall. Doors open at 7:00 p.m. The show starts at 8:30 p.m.

For those who can't make it, catch videos of the winners at TWSNOW.com/riderspoll and follow us on Instagram and Twitter @TWSNOW and #TWRIDERSPOLL for live coverage.
