Congratulations to the folks at Ski the East and Meathead Films, who picked up the award for “Best Powder” segment in the crew’s latest film, “No Matter What,” at Thursday night’s Powder Video Awards. It’s the first time the East Coast film outfit has brought the award home.
The segment, filmed last February 26 at Jay Peak, can be seen in part in the movie trailer above (44 second mark), as skier Ben Leoni floats through powder that seemed was never coming after the doldrums that plagued much of last year’s skiing and riding season. The East has been duly rewarded this season, as have the Meatheads.
Check out the award presentation here. The Powder Video Awards are hosted annually by Powder Magazine.
