We know you’re out there climbing through mud to reach that one patch of snow so that you can claim first tracks of the season amongst your friends. Or maybe you’re in Colorado taking advantage of those huge October dumps. Hell, maybe you’re jonesing so bad that you find yourself in a couple of sand dunes strapped to a snowboard.
Send us your early season madness photos for a chance to win a prize package from The Snow Junkies. What’s in this magic bag, you ask? It’s going to be surprise, but we expect you’ll say something along the lines of “Oh, is that it? This is sort of okay.”
Hey, what do we look like? Powder Magazine? We don’t have any advertisers and our fans are dirt poor. Just send us something awesome and make our day. You have until November 30th and we’re posting all entries on the site.

Vail Resorts wants to give you a season pass. What do they want back? Take some photos, write a few blog posts, and spend some time on Facebook. It’s a cool marketing idea — they’ll get tons of content and you’ll get some free riding. Your first mission: get picked. There’s a contest and you got to make a video. Deadline is April 1st.
Here’s a contest from Jones Soda that’s right up our alley. Take some photos, post them on Facebook, and win a trip to Mammoth. Contest rules from the Jones website:
CONTEST: Jan 19 – Feb 19, 2010
Every roadtrip is an adventure in the making and a story waiting to be told. Show us the best photos from yours, and you could win a trip for 2 to Mammoth Mountain plus a full snowboard gear + apparel setup from Ride Snowboards. Not to mention, your winning photo on thousands of bottles of Jones Soda across the country.
Your roadtrip can be whatever you want – a couple hours drive up to your local ski resort or an epic winter-long quest for pow. It’s up to you. Grab your board, skis, toboggan; it doesn’t matter what you ride. What matters is that you’re out there going for it.
To make things interesting, we’ve teamed up with Snowboard Magazine, Ride Snowboards, Skullcandy, Mammoth Mountain and Horizon Air on a bunch of cool prizes, and we’ll be heading out in the Jones Soda RV on a roadtrip of our own.
Rules of the Road
1. Go to Facebook.com/JonesSoda and add your roadtrip photos to our wall for entry. Remember to become a fan to receive the latest updates from the road and check out the Roadtrip Jones photo gallery.
2. Tag your photos – For all the photos and anything else you post to Facebook and Twitter during your roadtrip, use the tag #roadtripjones so we know you’re participating.
3. If you’re on Twitter, follow @jonessodaco and hit us with a tweet or two from wherever you are.
4. Grand prize and second prize winning photos will be selected by Jones Soda on March 1st, 2010. The People’s Choice Award will be chosen by popular vote on Facebook. Good luck.]]>
There’s no better place to spend Hallmark’s fake holiday than on the ski hill. We got five fun events listed below. There’s something for everyone — Singles, couples, and even one deal for those looking to take the plunge.
1. Mt Bachelor- Red Hot Love
2. Mt Hood Meadows Ski Resort- Chairway to Heaven
Mt. Hood Meadows presents “Chairway to Heaven” – speed dating on its Blue chairlift this Valentine’s Sunday. There will be two “singles” lines – one for women and one for men. In total randomness (which is an awesome way to start a relationship) the singles will be paired up on the Blue chairlift for a nine-minute ride to the top. The couple can decide if they want to take some runs together, go off to another chair lift, or split up and take another shot at a speed date. There is no additional cost for “Chairway to Heaven” other than a lift ticket or season pass.
The “Meadows Mingle” will also be presented near the bottom of the Blue chairlift to get everyone in the mood. There’ll be wine tasting, a fire pit, cheese and crackers and a drawing for fabulous prizes, all while listening to the velvet tones of Barry White, Al Green, Marvin Gaye, Luther Vandross, Teddy Pendergrass and others. The Mingle and Chairway to Heaven events are scheduled from 11 AM – 5 PM.
3. Loveland Ski Area- Marry-Me and Ski-Free!
Participating couples that complete the pre-registration form will be eligible for the $59 “2 for 1” lift tickets the day of the event. Pre-registered couples will also be eligible to purchase 2-for-1 lunches for $11 including two $11 vouchers good at any Loveland Cafeteria outlet (alcohol excluded). Wedding cake, raffle tickets and beer coupons will be provided complimentary for pre-registered couples. Pre-registration ends on February 12, 2010.
4. Squaw Valley USA- Valentines Day Scavenger Hunt
The Where’s the Love Scavenger Hunt is the perfect way to explore Squaw Valley’s lush terrain and is open to all guests at Squaw Valley USA on Valentine’s Day. Skiers and riders who find a hidden magnetic heart can bring it to Plaza Bar for redemption of prizes such as lift tickets, ski and snowboard lessons, gift certificates to shops, bars and restaurants, and more. The hunt begins at 9 am when the lifts open and lasts until the last heart is found.
5. Mad River Glen Ski Area- St Valentine’s Day Kissing Special
Those who kiss each other in front of the ticket booth will get $14 tickets.]]>
Your peers will vote on the winners, and we’re going to be giving away some gear to the best ones. The Grand Prize: a brand new pair of 4FRNT skis, along with having your commercial featured on the 4FRNT website and in the special features of some of next year’s ski movies. Everyone in the top 10 will get some 4FRNT shirts, hats or hoodies as well.
Anything goes as long as it doesn’t involve profanity, nudity or anything else that could be considered in poor taste (we’ll be the final judge of that, but if you wouldn’t show it to your parents, you may not want to give it to us). The deadline is January 31, 2010 for entries, so you got one week to throw on your creative pants and make it happen!

The best part is, there’s no videos to upload, no stories to write, no submissions to create, all you have to do is sign up and win!
Ski Maine has launched their Peak to Peak challenge for the 09/10 ski season. The goal: ski or ride every mountain in Maine. You’ve got the entire season and we’ll be keeping you up to date with the cheapest times to hit the slope.

During the 2009/10 winter season, we’re challenging skiers and snowboarders to try more Maine terrain. The challenge is simple: just keep track of your visits, and you’ll automatically be entered for a chance to win big prizes, including lift tickets and winter gear. And with each new area you visit, the prize pot gets richer. Take this year’s challenge and next year might be on us.
