The Readers’ Choice Award is one of the highest honors you can receive as a snowboarder, because it's an award that is completely chosen by viewers that are most in-tune with snowboarding. We opened up voting so you could select your favorite snowboarder, the one that you feel best showcases the true soul of snowboarding. Maybe you chose the rider that you think exudes the best style, stomps the biggest tricks, is the most personable, or whatever it may be, these riders are a direct reflection of who you think is worthy of this prestigious award. After weeks of voting, these are the nominees for Women's Readers' Choice for Riders' Poll 2016.
Jess Kimura – Online Full Part
Despite enduring an injury, Jess overcame the obstacles in front of her and put out this stacked full part, which she edited herself.
Leanne Pelosi – Full Moon Full Part
Leanne Pelosi, the fearless leader behind Full Moon, put together one of the best all-women's snowboard films on record, and also put out a hell of a part that includes AK lines, spines, and pillow drops that will make your jaw drop.
Robin Van Gyn – Full Moon Full Part
Robin Van Gyn put out a part in Full Moon that is stacked with big lines, massive spins, and expert trickery, but it also showcases her positive, can-do attitude.
