It’s been a pretty busy month for award shows. While many had their attention turned to big gala’s such as the Grammy’s and the Golden Globes, it could have been easy to forget about that very special event that goes down each year in a little place called Aspen. Luckily for you, Grindtv was on hand to bring you all of the juicy photos and details from the tenth annual Powder Video Awards (PVA) & Reader’s Poll that took place during Winter X Games 14 in Aspen, CO.

The best moment of the night was arguably the induction for the “Lifetime Achievement Award.” This prestigious award went to none other then the legend himself, Mr. Warren Miller. At 85, Miller is veteran in the game and flew in from Montana for the event despite a broken back.

When accepting the award, Miller said “I’m 85, that’s a long trip on a pair a skis.” He also encouraged all skiers to remember Shane McConkey, and take note of his incredible feats. Miller ended his speach by saying “Make a lot of turns and enjoy every moment of it…just don’t cross your tips!”

Good times were had by all, especially by the winners! Check them out-
