After an intense and long four days of shooting, the week came to a close with an awards ceremony at Brewvies in downtown SLC. The party got off to a good start with multiple drink tickets in hand and snacks to munch. After the crowd got a decent buzz the party moved to the theater where the MC made quick work of the awards. First up was the "Urban meets Mountain" category where Bruno Long took home the first prize and a check for $1,000. Next up was the "Athletes' Choice" award where each athlete submits what he/she thinks is the best shot they got all week. BOOM, Parker Cook and I took home the first-place prize. $500 for Parker and the image will be used as a full-page ad in Powder Magazine next season.

"Best in Show" followed and Steve Lloyd took home the top prize. Then the big three awards were handed out. "Team Cash" didn't place top three but props to Team Harris, Team Hostetler and Team Long who took 3rd through 1st respectively. Cheers to the winners, my team of athletes who skied their hearts out, and Ski Salt Lake for putting together a great event.
