Mt. Hood Meadows Film FestivalBlake McCoy took top honors at the 2nd annual Mt. Hood Meadows Film Festival, presented Saturday at Meadows. Blake and a solid core of riders took full advantage of the late February powder draped over Meadows' spectacular steep terrain in his submission entitled, "Mt. Hood Shreadows".

Meadows showed the top 10 finalists of the Film Festival, transforming the Vertical Restaurant into a theater. A crowd of 200 packed the theater and cheered on the film makers. All 10 finalists won a prize package including a logoed Columbia Sportswear backpack, a $50 Meadows gift card, a KEEN footwear certificate, vitaminwater®, Full Sail attire and Rollic hat and water bottle..

The top three finalists also received Go Pro HD helmet cams. Blake's entry edged out Tommy Ellingson - who had some of the most amazing point of view camera footage of big mountain powder riding at Meadows, and Evan Applegate who produced "Hood Love", an upbeat well edited feature which used time lapse photography and fun riding in tribute to Mt. Hood. Blake also received the $500 cash prize.
