Ready. Set. Rip. Young Guns Snow is back!
Get ready to fire off your best clips. The hunt is on!
Got skills? Got style? Got the clips to prove it? It’s time to mix it up with the top under 18-year-old snowboarders in the world. With the help of Travis Rice, Quiksilver is going on a digital mission to find the best Young Guns on the mountain. The winner earns an all-expenses-paid trip to Jackson Hole to go riding with Travis Rice himself. So strap in, go big and get your best clips ready. The hunt is on!
ROUND 1: SLAM THE GRAM
R1 - #YGSNOW – INSTAGRAM CHALLENGE
Dec 15th 2016 – Jan 23rd 2017
That rectangular chunk of vibrating metal in your pocket? It could be your ticket to Jackson Hole. Post your best clips on Instagram, tagging @quiksilver and hashtagging #YGSNOW. There are no guidelines. No rules. Just you, your snowboard, some frozen water and and a world of opportunity.
Enter as many times as you’d like and our official #YGSNOW judge, Mr. Travis Rice, will choose his faves, sending The top 10 Young Guns onto Round 2. So fire up your film squad, get out there and bank some clips. Then cross your frost-bitten fingers and hope you get chosen...just make sure you push “post” first.
Oh, and a quick heads up: If you’re not under the age of 18 on March 10th 2017, then sorry old man, you’re out. On the flip side, you need to be over the age of 13 before Dec, 15th, 2017 to qualify.
R1 - #YG SNOW – TOP 10 FINALISTS ANNOUNCEMENT
Jan 30th 2017
You came. You rode. You posted. You maybe even conquered. The all-knowing Travis Rice judged it all, and here are the top 10 chosen ones. Meet your finalists, and all give these dudes a round of applause — then get ready for the second act.
ROUND 2: BRING THE HYPE
R2 - VIDEO CHALLENGE - CLIP PRODUCTION
Feb 15th 2017 – March 1st 2017
Survived Round 1? Nice work. Now it’s time to step up. Round 2 is a DIY chance to impress. And this time, it’s all about bringing the hype. You’ll have 2 weeks to put together a 1-1:30 minute clip of your best snowboarding with the music turned up to 11. We’ll supply the songs and graphics, but it’s on you to shoot the footage and cut the edit. All clips will live on Quiksilver’s Young Guns Snow website for public voting from March 1st to March 7th 2017. See you there.
R2 - VIDEO CHALLENGE – VOTING PERIOD
March 1st 2017 – March 7th 2017
Remember, more hype means more votes! Drag your crew in from Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat…maybe even pay a guy to dance around in a gorilla suit to on the busiest corner of your hometown. After all, every vote counts and one click could be the difference between the dreaded “almost won” and a ticket to Jackson Hole.
March 10th 2017
That’s it, folks. That’s all she wrote. The people have spoken and a decision has been made. Your 2017 Quiksilver YG Snow champion will be? Get the answer on March 10th! As a result, he’s heading to Jackson Hole to go riding with Travis Rice. Not such a bad life for a Young Gun.
