California has some snarky laws on what promotional material breweries can and can’t give away, so instead of offering free beer, Seattle-based Pyramid Breweries is giving away the next best thing: free skiing. Between now and the 15th of January, you can sign up to win a five-day trip for you and three friends to Squaw Valley, California.

The grand prize includes airfare, lodging, cat skiing, lift tickets, a custom Pyramid K2 snowboard, and Mountain Hardware outerwear. Second place wins a custom Pyramid K2 board and third place gets Mountain Hardware clothing.

Here’s how to sign up:

Step one: Open a beer. This can be any old brew of your choosing, but karma would suggest that you drink a Pyramid beer, like the full-bodied Snow Cap Winter Warmer Ale.

Step two: Go to this link and sign up for Pyramid Breweries winter giveaway sweepstakes.

Step three: Wait to win.

But I’m a skier! Why do I want a snowboard? Here are five things a skier can do with a free snowboard:

1.Glue shot glasses to it.

2.Turn it into a coffee table.

3.Attach an old office chair to the top. Now, on snowy nights, sit back and relax while your dog takes you for a walk.

4.Pass along the good luck: Give it to a kid who can’t afford his or her own gear.

5.Learn to snowboard. Yeah, I’m joking. I just can’t think of a fifth thing to do with a snowboard.
