Six edits duke it out in the West Coast Session team video contest
Following the West Coast Session 7—which invaded Mt. Hood from May 5-9, 2013—a total of six teams released edits in conjunction with the Camtrol/Ion Session Showdown video contest. Teams consisted of two videographers and a select crew of skiers; each group utilized features at Timberline Ski Area and Windells Camp, and had five days to shoot the edits. The fruits of their labor are posted below.
Through 8:00 p.m. ET on Friday, May 31, the public can cast votes for a favorite video. The edit that garners the most votes will earn the distinction of People’s Choice. The winner of the $4,000 cash prize (presented by Camtrol and Ion) will be determined by the collective group of West Coast Session skiers and filmers.
Without further ado, WCS representatives invite you to “sit back, crack open a beverage and enjoy almost a half hour of skiing edits featuring 48 of the world’s top freeskiers.”
