The “Red Bull Bracket Reel” contest started February 16, 2015 with the first round of voting. New edits will drop online each subsequent week and winners will be announced March 6. Who wins is up to you: Winners will be determined entirely by fan voting.

Each team’s video segments will be broken into three parts: morning, day, and night. The entire edit represents one epic day, using footage compiled from the winter season. As teams advance each week, they’ll drop their next segment. The third and final week, the two finalists will duel it out to let viewers determine who had the most epic “day” of the season.

The grand prize is a hosted epic closing weekend at a ski resort of the winning team’s choice, including lift tickets, two nights of lodging and airfare for the entire team. Additional prizes, including trophies and hosted viewing parties, will be awarded to teams with the best conditions, the best locations, and the most team spirit.
