Wrightwood, CA – Mike Benson from grenadeartist.com declared victory with his win of Best Video at this year’s Video Wars at Mountain High.  Video Wars were design to showcase the talents of those individuals behind the scenes.  Taking advantage of great riding and a creative idea, Mike edged out the competition with his “Moon Man” video.  Mark Biggins from Lame Productions took home the prize for Best Riding and Gregory Scott demonstrated superior editing skills by winning Best Editing.   All three producers walked home with a Mountain High 08/09 Season Pass, gear from L-R-G, and a case of Monster Energy Drink.

The top videos will be featured on snowboard-mag.com, snowboardermag.com, futuresnowboarding.com, transworldsnowboarding.com, freeskier.com, and other action sports sites.  The Mountain High website, mthigh.com, has also posted a link to the winning videos in addition to every video submitted.   Check it out at http://mthigh.com/video/wars/2008/.

The winners were announced Saturday, February 16th, at the Video Wars After Party.  Free Monster Energy Drinks were given out along with gear from L-R-G, DVS, Matix, and Mountain High.  Every video was screened and the crowd really got into the final submissions.   In the end, everyone had a great time and plans are already underway for Video Wars 2009.

Says John McColly, Director of Marketing, “It was a lot of fun watching the videos.  There are some really creative people out there.”
