Pat Moore at the Red Bull Snow Perfomance Camp in New Zealand Miles Holden/Red Bull Media House

***UPDATE Jan. 22: You've helped push Eero all the way to the final round; vote now and help him take the Fan Favorite award!***

***UPDATE Jan. 15: Eero Ettala has moved on to the second round of voting; go here to view his match-up and vote to push him through to the Final!***


Insane. That's the best way to describe Pat Moore's entry in the ESPN Real Snow video part contest. Moore jumps over a railing on a highway overpass, kisses the wall and slides down what looks like more than 25 feet onto a snow bank.

And that's only the beginning.

Moore's entry is one of eight 60-second video parts included in the 2013 ESPN Real Snow contest. Fans like you can vote for the winner of the Fan Favorite award, while a panel of industry experts will determine the X Games gold, silver and bronze medalists in Aspen at the end of the month. Last year, Moore, whose latest video part for Forum can be seen below, claimed bronze.

Another Red Bull athlete, Eero Ettala, the 2010 Winter X Games Slopestyle gold medalist, is also in the hunt -- though on the opposite side of the bracket.

Ettala's video part has him jumping off statues, soaring over impossible gaps and sliding massive rails -- all in the dead of night. While we can't embed ESPN's video, you can see one of Eero's incredible full parts from 2012 below.

Voting for the first round runs from January 8-14. Winners will move on to the second round from January 15-21, with the final match-up open for voting starting January 22.

The medalists will be announced during the live broadcast from X Games Aspen on January 24, but you'll still have a chance to cast your vote in the final round of Fan Favorite judging, which will be open until midnight ET on January 27.
