In our November issue we asked you (the readers,) to vote on who you thought were the best riders of 1999. On January 1, 1999 we tallied the thousands upon thousands of ballots we received, but had to keep it a secret ’til March when we had our little “awards ceremony” in Las Vegas. There, in front of the top snowboarders in the world, we told them who all of you liked best. Here’s who you picked.

Barrett was so excited you chose her, she dropped her award.

Peter was sad, because the night before he’d gotten kicked out of his own dance party. But after finding out you loved him the most, he busted a move.
