End of an era: 10+ bangin’ videos from the final West Coast Session

End of an era: 10+ bangin’ videos from the final West Coast Session

One of skiing’s most badass events, West Coast Session (WCS), said farewell to the ski community last month with its 10th and final offering at Mt. Hood, Oregon. We’re extremely saddened to hear this news, as WCS has been a true staple in the core skiing community; amidst all the crazy contests and corporate pressures many athletes have seen over the years, WCS remained a constant throughout, providing a place for all types of talent to come together and throw down for fun—nothing more and nothing less.

While the anti-competition vibe is what WCS is all about, some friendly rivalry is still involved, as shown through the insane collection of videos gradually released over the past few weeks. The main source of these videos is the WCS10 Team Edit Contest, which put 11 teams head-to-head to see who could produce the best recap. A winner will be chosen via public online voting, which will start at an undisclosed date.

Moreover, WCS put on a variety of smaller video comps for Best Grab, Best Grind, Best 180, Best Overall Instragram Post and MVP/Best Trick. Those videos were submitted via Instagram with their respective hashtags (#wcsgrab, #wcsgrind, etc.), and offer a rough, behind-the-scenes look at what these mad skiers were up to on that big ol’ Oregonian glacier.

All of the videos mentioned above can be found and watched below, but we know your time is precious, so here are our top three suggestions if you have to be picky:

Again, we can’t stress enough how sad it is to see this event go. But we’d like to take this opportunity, nonetheless, to thank WCS organizers, skiers, filmers and photogs that have participated over the past decade. You guys kick ass.

With that, we’ll conclude with these six simple and heartfelt letters: R.I.P., WCS.
