NEPSA Awards in Aspen

The NEPSA Awards is the unofficial kickoff to ski season in Aspen. Its always a huge night.  NEPSA (Aspen spelled backwards) offers cash prizes to amateur filmmakers as well as a "home field" venue to showcase their work.  The super-rowdy crowd, mostly locals, is full of energy and love for snowsports. 

 Due to AspenSpin's extended stay in ski-hab we missed NEPSA for the first time since its inception 6 years ago.  Although we were absent from the Ski-porn, we're happy to report that new blood topped the  NEPSA podium in 2010.  Local shredders Doran LayBourn and Aaron G. Hooper took home the $2000 first place price with their flick; GOOD to GO.  Laybourn who was injured in a terrible back country accident with a snowmobile in 2007 is apparently  back in Aspen and Good to Go for Winter 2010/11.  Yeeeaaaahh boy!!

Thanks to Zach Hooper for sharing his photos with us.  See his work at ZACHHOOPERPHOTO.com
