The best in ski cinematography, athletic achievement and photography will be celebrated at the Riverwalk Center in Breckenridge Thursday evening with the 18th annual Powder Awards.

A panel of professional skiers, photographers, filmmakers, journalists and industry veterans reviewed 50-plus entries in 13 categories — including Movie of the Year, Best Female Performance, Best Powder, and Best Jib — to determine nominees and winners for the 8 p.m. show.

The event also showcases readers’ favorite skiers with the annual Powder Poll, recognizing the sport’s top three women and three men.

This year’s show for the first time will feature the introduction of the Moving Mountains Award. The award celebrates a humanitarian in the ski industry whose work has been instrumental in influencing and enriching the long-term health of the sport.

Tickets for all ages are on sale for $12, with proceeds benefiting the High Fives Foundation to supports action sports athletes that have suffered a life altering injury.
