Welcome to The Fillmore.

Denver, CO— Snowboarding’s top riders came out to the Fillmore Auditorium on Friday night for the 14th Annual TransWorld SNOWboarding Riders’ Poll Awards Presented by New Era. Emcee’s GT and John Jackson presided over the ceremony—the biggest off-snow event in the industry—as the best riders of 2012 took the stage in recognition of individual progression and style in both riding and videography. To be recognized in this capacity by one’s peers is one of the highest accomplishments in snowboarding. Winners are determined by polling over 100 top pros to get their take on the best riding, video parts, and tricks of the year. Congratulations to all the nominees—here are the winners.
