Ski Resort Life

Win a Family Ski Getaway!

Tell us why your family deserves to win a free ski vacation. And make it a really good reason, because next month SKI readers will vote for their favorite entries. The three lucky families with the most votes will win vacations to Smugglers' Notch, Steamboat and Northstar-at-Tahoe.

Ski Magazine wants to offer you and your family a dream vacation! Imagine carving turns down a pristine mountain, enjoying a relaxing soak in an alpine hot tub, and curling up with loved ones in front of a crackling fireplace. This is your chance to make memories you’ll treasure for a lifetime.  Ready to enter?  Here’s how:

Step 1:

Just tell us in 100 words or less why you deserve a relaxing family vacation in the mountains, and you could win a four-day trip to Smugglers’ Notch, Vt., Steamboat, Colo., or Northstar at Tahoe, Calif.—complete with airfare and accommodations for two adults and two children (children must be under age 18), and ski lessons or daycare for the kids.

Enter as often as you like, up to once per day from now till January 21. Just be sure each entry includes a new, creative and convincing reason why you should be one of the lucky families to win. We’ll post the funniest and most inspiring answers on the SKI Web site throughout the contest, so check back frequently to see if your writing has been featured.

Step 2:

Entries will close on January 21, 2010, and then it’s time to vote. The editors of SKI Magazine will narrow the entries to their top 25 choices. It’s your job to come back to the site daily (and encourage your friends and family to do the same) to vote for your favorite entries. We can send you email reminders if you like, so you don’t forget. The three entries with the most votes on the day the contest closes (February 1, 2010) will each be awarded one of the family ski vacations.

Good stuff to know:

The sponsors will assign the exact destinations and accommodations for each winner (sorry, you don’t get to choose—but that’s part of the fun). Prize packages will be available for fulfillment only during specified weeks throughout the 2010 ski season; some blackout dates may apply. No purchase necessary to win; must be at least 18 to enter.
