Contest: Aspen Vs. Vail

Contest: Aspen Vs. Vail

[ February 10, 2010 - 7:06pm ]
Travelocity Roaming Gnome
Travel website Travelocity is offering up a free ski trip to one lucky Colorado-resort booster

Nothing healthier than a little home-state rivalry. Travel website Travelocity is hosting a little competition via Facebook, asking followers to choose Vail or Aspen, Colo., as their favorite ski destination. Well, technically voters are choosing where the Roaming Gnome -- Travelocity's bearded and be-capped little mascot -- should make his next ski-country stop. The previous two contests pitted Whistler against Banff (Whistler won) and Utah vs. Lake Tahoe. (Utah won. But to be fair, that's a whole state of skiing versus one region of skiing -- a rather large region spread across two states, but still.) In addition to rabid, resort-specific boostering, voters are also eligible to win a ski trip for two to Vail, including airfare, a four-night hotel stay and three-day lift ticket pass. While you can vote as often as you'd like -- until the Feb. 17 deadline, anyway -- you'll only get one chance to win the free trip.
