Here are the winners of the West Coast Session 10 "Let Me Session" contest. These fine individuals were chosen from over 60 applicants to join the crew at WCS10. Many thanks to all of the contest entrants — your great submissions made choosing a winner highly difficult!

  We’ll be honest with you — for ten years now we’ve been trying to get a video invite contest for the West Coast Session going, and every single stinking year — due either to lacking sponsor commitments, or our own foot-dragging—we’ve successfully failed to get the “LET ME SESSION” contest off the ground. But not this year, dammit. It’s West Coast Session 10, and if we’ve got one chance left to do this thing, then by God we’re doing to do it. The scene may now be flooded with video contests, from B&E to “Wanna be a Knight” to Level 1’s Superunknown (whatever that is).

So without further ado, we’re happy to present the “LET ME SESSION” contest — YOUR chance to earn a coveted spot on the West Coast Session invite list. The contest is open to MALE and FEMALE skiers as well as PHOTOGRAPHERS and FILMERS. Here’s how to enter: SKIERS: Create a 30-second clip of your best […]
