Monster Energy congratulates its snowboard athletes on claiming three highly coveted awards in the 2021 Slushies hosted by Slush Snowboard Magazine. In the annual awards voted by a panel of snowboard professionals, 27-year-old Sage Kotsenburg from Park City, Utah, received the Men’s Rider of The Year title. His Monster Energy teammate, 27-year-old Jill Perkins from Moorpark, California, took home honors for Women’s Rider of The Year and Women’s Most Valuable Video Player.
The 2021 Slush Awards honored the best snowboarding movies, riders, videos, and overall contributions to snowboard culture of the last season. Slush magazine is published by Pat Bridges, the long-time editorial director of Snowboarder Magazine. Born out of the desire to provide authentic stewardship of snowboarding culture while evangelizing the “riding life”, Slush delivers original content across several media channels. Now in their first year, the Slush Awards were voted by a panel of snowboard professionals.
When the results were finalized Kotsenburg took home the coveted Men’s Rider of the Year trophy for a standout season, including the boundary-pushing Halcyon’ video project filmed in natural environments such as Jackson Hole, Wyoming; Park City, Utah; Whistler, Canada; and Alaska.
