It’s back! Quiksilver's Young Guns Snow is back!
With the help of Snowboarder Magazine and this year's official super judge, Mr. Travis Rice, we are going on a digital mission to find the best Young Guns on the mountain.
This year's winner earns an all-expenses-paid trip to Jackson Hole to go riding with T. Rice himself. They'll also get hooked up with a stack of Quiksilver goodies and, of course, will proudly own the 2017 Young Guns Snow title.
The contest kicks off on December 15, with contestants tasked to “Slam The Gram." – All 13-18 year old snowboarders can enter Young Guns Snow via Instagram by posting their best clips while hashtagging #YGSnow and tagging @quiksilver. Hopefuls will have until January 23rd to hit send, cross their frostbitten fingers and wait for that tick of approval from the honourable Travis Rice. After a week of deliberation, Travis will announce his hand-picked Top 10 on January 30th.
Then it's time to step up. The final is all about “Bringing The Hype." The Top 10 will put together a 1:00-1:30 minute clip of their best snowboarding with the volume cranked up to 11. All clips will live on Quiksilver's Young Guns Snow event website up for public vote determining who will ultimately become our champion. The polls are open from March 1st – March 7th.
The winner will be announced on March 10, 2017
So strap in, get ready and get to riding. THE HUNT IS ON!
