Boreal's 2nd Annual Team Video Challenge
Donner Summit, CA (December 4, 2010)
The week-long filming session for the Team Video Challenge (TVC) ended on November 22nd. That's when thirteen teams feverishly went to work editing their master pieces. Given 72 hours to complete the task, each team produced an edit with the hopes of taking home a piece of the $2,500 cash prize purse.
On Friday, December 3rd, Boreal hosted the TVC viewing party up on Donner Summit. All the videos were projected onto a massive screen and the public was given an opportunity to vote for their favorite. The public vote was 1/5 of the overall score. In the end it was the deciding factor, shaking up positions and revealing a winner by a one-point margin.
bHappy Films walked home with top-honors and $2,000 cash in their pockets for documenting the epic 5-mile journey from Truckee to Boreal. Team Gremlinz took the last minute lead in the most views category, earning $500 for their efforts. Awards were also handed out for Best Rider, Best Female and Best Skier in the form of a private photo/film session for the winning crew. Best Rider went to Niko Cioffi, Best Female went to Laurie Currier and Andy McDowell earned the Best Skier award.
After seeing TVC videos all over the web, GoPro® contacted Boreal offering to give a full factory sponsorship to the team winning "Best Production". In the end Team Surface Skis will get fully-dialed thanks to GoPro®.
All the videos from the 2nd Annual TVC can be viewed on BorealTerrainPark.com. Boreal now has two terrain parks open 9am – 9pm, and the park crew is putting the final touches on the superpipe and main jumpline. For more information on Boreal check out www.rideboreal.com.
