POWDER Magazine has announced the 2011 POWDER Video Awards and Reader Poll (PVA’s) will take place at Aspen’s Wheeler Opera House for the first time on Friday, Jan. 28, 2011.

Votes are now being accepted for the Reader Poll to award the top 10 male skiers and 5 female skiers. Feverish water cooler conversations have already begun about Seth Morrison and if he’ll take his 5th consecutive award. Seth and Shane McConkey are the only two men to ever win the POWDER Reader Poll. In addition to the Reader Poll, the Video Awards will recognize 15 unique categories including “Breakthrough Performance” and “Full Throttle.”

Since 2000, the PVA’s are recognized by the industry, athletes and skiing community as the premier ski awards. Continuing to be the most sought-after party during Winter X Games in Aspen, those lucky enough to get in the door experience one of the most intimate parties of the year.
