Event organizers of The North Face Park and Pipe Open Series (PPOS) Virtual Competition are thrilled to announce the top competitors who emerged after public voting closed on March 6. A panel of judges selected the top percentage of halfpipe and slopestyle video entries to advance to the final round of judging based on the number public votes and video views in combination with athletic ability, skiing style and difficulty of tricks. Noah Wallace submitted the video with the most votes which automatically garnered him the Viewer’s Choice Award.

The final judging period will take place March 20-23 in Salt Lake City, UT. The panel of judges includes Mike Atkinson, Jason Arens, and The North Face Athletes Tom Wallisch, Mike Riddle and Maddie Bowman. Each finalist run will be judged using an overall impression score as if the run was executed at an on-snow competition. In addition to the overall category winners, specialty prizes will be awarded for Best GoPro Footage, Best Rail, Best Jump, Biggest Personality. One of the winners will also be selected to receive the Grand Prize and film a segment for Tom Wallisch’s new film “Good Company.” Winners will be announced March 24, 2015.
