Finalists-Announced

Words by Orage

With 24 contending crews and more than 100 skiers looking to prove their shred-worthy fortitude to compete in the Orage Masters, the Elite Eight contest has officially come to a close… Or so we thought.

After hours of intense scrutiny, deliberation, and computer-generated scientific algorithms, the 24 submissions have resulted in a three-way tie. These top three crews were chosen for their skill diversity on rails, urban and park airs, their display of the wild side “Masters Vibe,” their underdog factor, creativity, and overall impression. In other words, they slay slopes, love to have a good time and have true potential to surprise and battle the best.

Without further ado, the three crews who came out on top are: Totally Trevor Crew, HoodCrew and Me Gustan Aviones… In no specific order.

Rather than searching for a three-sided coin to flip we’ve decided to divert back to our deliberation room for the weekend before we make our make a final decision on who takes the cake.

We’ve left the three top edits on the Elite Eight contest page, wiped their total “Likes” clean and are giving you one last opportunity to sway our decision. You will have until midnight, Sunday March 17 (EST) to cast your vote by hitting the “Like” button below the video for the team you deem most worthy of a shot at Masters glory.

On Monday, March 18th, we will announce the winning crew and bestow upon them the golden ticket to the Masters on April 6, 2013.

Huge props to all the crews who submitted edits. We wish we could take all of you to Sun Valley and run a full on Masters blow out… But for now, only one crew can prevail.
