Jake Blauvelt and Nicolas Müller in big mountain riding.

Don't watch many park vids so I don't know too many riders on that side.

Yea, they are both awesome at doing the back country wedge into the abyss type thing. I like watching Landvik and Devun Walsh too.

Chas Guldemond I like to watch style out on big air backsides, he's got his method really dialed. Scotty Lago is another really fun one to watch.

JP Walker, IMO, is the best overall rider. He can just do anything and he's contributed so much to freestyle riding. Nic Sauve is probably my favorite street guy though.

^^Landvik and Devun are on my list too, along with DCP. I prefer the fluid, more stylish backcountry riding that someone like Nico does over the huge kickers and bigs spins/corks that Rice is famous for.

Although I don't watch much park/pipe vids, Lago does kill it. Another fav for pipe (and some backcountry too) is Kaz Kokubo. Great style there too.

Jake Olson-Elm is definitely someone I like watching right now and he's a chill dude to talk to also. Danny Larsen is another guy that stokes me out. Then there's all the up and comer kids that film with their homies like the bHappy Crew and such. Also under rated kid I like watching is Durell Williams watch him blow up in the next year guaranteed.

Scott Stevens is the shit; guy makes the most of his skate roots bringing it over onto the snow.

I know a lot of the slopestyle guys just huck big spins but Eric Willett stands out. His double rodeo 9 -> switch backside 12 -> frontside 10 double cork line in Bangers @ Breck looks pretty damned stylish.
