From Las Vegas to Aspen to Park City, and now back to Colorado, there's one thing for sure- no matter where they take place, The Powder Awards are never boring. The 17th Annual Powder Awards took place in Breckenridge last night to kick off the Dew Tour weekend. Skiers and fans gathered to celebrate the year's best films, and athletes, and from the looks of things they got rowdy in true ski event fashion as staff recollection of the evening is low.
