We at Downdays find it odd that the highly coveted Freeskier Magazine’s ‘Skier of the Year’ seems to have forgotten many heavy hitting European riders. The SOTY nominations are stacked with a generous dose of North American riders while Europe is only represented by a few.
Freeride World Tour dominators like Loic Collomb-Patton and Nadine Wallner are nowhere to be found, not to mention a number of other seriously talented European skiers. That’s kinda fucked.
While we don’t usually do this, we have taken it upon ourselves to hold a vote for the best European skier! So, have a good think about it and help decide the fate of Europe’s best.
Vote below on who you think was the skier of the year from this glorious continent and justify yourself in the comments! If you think we have missed someone, let us know, and we may even add him or her to the list.
Vote stops the 27th of November at midnight
Results will be announced the 28th of November during the day
