As you probably saw a few weeks ago, Leo T was awarded a large sum of money for winning the 'Line of the Winter'. Now you can watch as GoPro surprises Léo to tell him the big news that he has just won $20,000. Léo explains his storied past with Val-d'Isère in France, where his line was filmed. After over 800 entries, Léo separated himself from the pack due to his creativity and the technical difficulty of skiing this narrow canyon flawlessly - all while making us smile along the way.

GoPro had the following to say: 'Congrats Léo! Huge thanks to our media partners Newschoolers and Transworld Snowboarding for supporting the contest and voting on the best submissions all winter long.'

We at Newschoolers are stoked to see Leo's line win. It's gnarly and creative in equal measure, and it's always good to see a skier come out on top! Massive shout out to GoPro for coming up with a contest that created so much crazy footage and allowed skiing like this a chance to come to the fore. We're looking forward to next year already!
