This season, GoPro and TransWorld SNOWboarding teamed up to bring you the Line of the Winter contest. The premise was simple; find your line, nail the shot, win the Grand Prize of $20,000. Hundreds upon hundreds of edits were submitted and a winner was selected each month for $1,000 prize. Now, the contest has wrapped, and the official Line of Winter winner has been chosen.
Watch the winning snowboard lines below, and congrats to Léo Taillefer for having the overall all best line of this winter. It made him $20k richer, and even if he is a skier, his line is one we can all be envious of.
Rob Kingwill- December Winner
Rob Kingwill hikes into the Jackson Hole backcountry with Kelly Halpin for an epic powder run and takes home $1,000 and a GoPro HERO4.
Spencer Whiting- February Winner
Spencer Whiting and Brandon Davis shred their man made fun track with style on the backside of Mammoth and take home the February trophy for Line of the Winter.
Léo Taillefer wins GoPro’s first Line of the Winter contest and takes home $20,000
Watch as GoPro surprises Léo to tell him the big news. Léo explains his storied past with Val d’Isère in France, where his winning line was filmed. After over 800 entries, Léo separated himself from the pack due to his creativity and the technical difficulty of skiing this narrow canyon flawlessly – all while making us smile along the way. Congrats Léo!
Congrats to all the winners, and hi-fives to all that submitted videos. Stay tuned for next season when Line Of The Winter returns… It’s never too early to start planning that line.
