2012 Skier of the Year Round 2 winners announced, Round 3 voting starts

Comments by Matt Harvey/

The polls opened on November 1, with 16 skiers pitted against each other in a head-to-head style format. In the weeks that followed, thousands upon thousands of people cast their vote. We are now down to just four men and four women.

Most of round two’s matchups delivered clear winners, with Michelle Parker versus Ingrid Backstrom coming in the closest. In the end, Ingrid received just a couple hundred more votes to take the victory. Round three is sure to be a close one, so get your vote in and tell your friends.
