Out of Service wins WSSF's Intersection with South Park spoof

Brin Alexander's Dongboyz + Kendra took the second place prize, with Sam Tuff's People's Choice award-winning Dead Barbies in third
Out of Service was the winner of WSSF's 2023 Intersection film contest at the Westin Thursday night, followed by Brin Alexander's Dongboyz + Kendra in second place and Sam Tuff's Dead Barbies in third.

Out of Service was the big winner at Thursday night's Intersection, the last of three multimedia events held at the Westin Resort and Spa as part of this year's World Ski and Snowboard Festival (WSSF). 

The veteran crew led by Geoff Brown returned to the Intersection stage on April 13 with a mountain culture spoof of South Park. Their submission was voted "Best in Show" by the judges, earning the crew a grand prize of $10,000 cash. 

Intersection first-timers rounded out the podium, with Brin Alexander's Dongboyz + Kendra taking second place and $5,000. In addition to Alexander, the crew included Will Kovacic, Alastair Spriggs, Jack MacDougall, Jack Dobson, Anders Liljedahl, Jason Fleury, Christopher Kirschner and Kendra Nimchuk. 

The third spot's $2,000 cash prize went to Dead Barbies, a majority female crew headed by Sam Tuff alongside Rachael Anderson, Meg Cumming, Zoe Blewett and Zak Mousseau, featuring Cat Agnew and Crystal Legoffe. Tuff's Dead Barbies also walked away with the $500 People’s Choice award as voted by the very stoked sold-out audience. 

The contest challenged five crews of athletes and artists to shoot, edit, and submit a four- to six-minute winter action sports edit "that truly captures the beauty of ski and snowboard culture," all within the span of just 12 days.

Also in the running were Matchstick Productions' Logan Pehota, Liam Fournier, Craig Murray, Mark Abma, Sandy Macewan and Anatole Tuzlak; and Revelstoke-based all-female crew The Blondes, with Emily Childs, Janelle Yip, Jordy Kidner and Tonje Kvivik. 

An esteemed panel of judges was on hand to select the winners, including Forecast Ski Magazine editor Jeff Schmuck; pro snowboarders and previous Intersection winners Chris Rasman, Jody Wachniak and Mark Sollors; and professional big mountain skier Alex Armstrong.
