If you’re burned out on internet contests and giveaways, no one would blame you. But here’s one you’re going to like: The Adventure Life, along with Wagner Custom Skis and Telluride Ski Resort, is giving away a three-day, four-night ski trip for two to Telluride, Colorado, along with a pair of custom Wagner sticks built just for you. And all you have to do to win is tell us how stoked you are on skiing.
The winner gets airfare for two from anywhere in the continental United States to Telluride, the aforementioned badass pair of perfectly engineered boards, lodging, lift tickets, and—check it out, peoples—if conditions are right, a day of helicopter skiing.
So, what’s all this about ski stoke? Well, to win all you’re required to do is express your excitement for skiing more powerfully, eloquently, and tangibly than anyone else. How do we define stoke? Well, it’s not just core. It melds enthusiasm, passion, spirit, and joy. It you’ve got it, you know it. Now share it and win.
How you gonna do that? Well, that’s up to you. But here are some suggestions:
1. Written essay
2. Video…short film…monologue…expression session…
3. Photo, essay, slideshow
4. Art, design, prints…painting, decorated ski topsheet, illustration
5. Web page
6. Performance art
7. Multimedia extravaganza
10. Song and dance
13. Assemblage of every season pass you’ve ever had.
14. Picture of your garage, which is so filled with ski gear that you can’t get through it.
Are you getting it? We don’t know what the winning effort will look like—that’s the beauty of it. It’s up to you—you and your passion for skiing.
