Sponsored by GoPro and Jackson Hole Mountain Resort, the Powder 8’s Grand National competition was brought back in triumphant style as 22 teams attempted to lock down part of the $10,000 cash prize awarded to the top three places.

Ultimately, Jim Schanzenbaker and Thomas Roennau of Aspen Colorado found themselves atop the podium after channeling TJ Burke and Todd Pounds during their victorious run down the Powder 8’s face off Cody Peak. While only two local groups would find places within the Top 5, Coloradoans reigned supreme at the event with 5 competitors taking top honors.
While the luck of the draw played a large part in who would finish in the Top 10, it was a close finish between the Top 5. Synchronicity and dynamics tipped the scales for the Aspen boys and until next year, the championship and the bragging rights belong in Aspen, Colorado.
