Each year for the past five, we've asked the freeski community to help us select the European Skier of the Year. Originally conceived as a one-off poll, the ESOTY vote is now one of freeskiing's core honorifics, a title to be carried with pride and one of the most popular events of the year on our website.

In 2018 we've got a new batch of ESOTY nominees up for your consideration. They are freeriders and freestylers, straightliners and street skiers, carefully selected by our editorial team based on contest results, film segments, and overall presence and influence. This is already the cream of the crop — now it's up to you to narrow it down.

Round 1 voting is open now and will run until 8:00PM on Saturday, December 8. Click here to cast your vote!
