Coach of the year went to Jackson coach Kevin Keane.
Official of the Year went to Jackson’s head coach Branko Zagar.

A new award was announced at the awards banquet in Wendover, NV. It is the Steve Bounous Excellence in Skiing Award. It will go to an upper level skier in IMD who is nominated by FIS level coaches and decided by a board of coaches and ski racing professionals. The award will include money to help with expenses incurred by upper level athletes. The award is named after retiring Snowboard Head Coach and Executive Director Steve Bounous.
