Our two judges play an integral role in the voting process. Each judge has the power to boost a team’s vote total by 10% with their Judge’s Pick. Judges have the ability to both pick the same team or the two judges can split their vote within a matchup with each judge choosing a different team. That means that one team could see their vote total boosted by 20% if they’re able to earn both judges’ votes. Once we reach the final round, there will be NO Judge’s Pick, which leaves it solely to the voters to decide who will be the Red Bull Bracket Reel Snow 2017 champion.

Note: The Judges’ Pick will be announced within 24 hours of the voting period ending.

Born and raised in Montreal, Sébastien 'Seb Toots' Toutant was never far from the slopes. When he broke his skis on a family holiday as a child, he had to ride out the rest of the season on one of his brother’s old snowboards. Needless to say, it wasn't long before he was hooked!

Seb has a wealth of grand slam titles under his belt, including several FIS World Cup wins and a number of Winter X Games podium spots, including gold in the 2013 slopestyle event and silver in the 2016 slopestyle. He followed up with gold in the 2016 Air + Style in Innsbruck.

The world is now Seb's playground, and he's keeping busy bringing his tricks to competition and shredding his way from podium to podium.

The daughter of the ski patrol director at Utah’s Snowbird ski area, Angel Collinson grew up in employee housing at the base of the mountain, becoming a skier not long after she learned to walk. As kids, she and her parents and her younger brother, fellow pro skier Johnny Collinson, would spend summers living out of their family’s van and climbing peaks all over the western United States.

An elite ski racer through her teens, Collinson gave up racing at age 19 and started entering big-mountain freeskiing contests, all while studying environmental law at the University of Utah. In her first year on the Freeskiing World Tour, in 2010, she won the overall title as a rookie, which she claimed again the following year.

By 2013, she’d transitioned to filming, with a breakout part in Teton Gravity Research’s annual ski movie. Now a regular star athlete in TGR’s films, Collinson’s claimed many awards for her film parts, including become the first female in history to win Best Line at the Powder Video Awards for the footage of her slashing a steep spine in Alaska.

“You consciously choose the way you want to live,” Angel says. “I grew up in the mountains and I love skiing because of that connection to nature. I enjoy things that make you feel really connected.”
