It's all going down again soon, from the 4th to 6th of October, and it's bound to be a veritable who's who of the ski industry once again.

- Best Rider Male
- Best Rider Female
- Best Movie
- Best Short Film (under 20 minutes)
- Honorific Award, which will reward the career/influence of a rider or a production who has made a big impact on the ski industry.
