A thousand entries and two dozen cocktails later, we came to a decision on the winner of our “Caption This!” contest (September 1999). Picking the funniest caption was no easy task. The prize package — three days of lift-served skiing at Telluride, three days of heli-skiing with Telluride Heli-Trax, and plush accommodations at the Skyline Guest Ranch — inspired unprecedented levels of reader creativity. But after reading the 300th version of “skiing during a big dump,” it became clear to us that a lot of you are watching way too much Beavis and Butt-Head. What our winner, and a handful of others, had was cleverness and originality. So, without further ado…Susan Liggett, come on down!

The Winner:

Somebody needs to tell this guy what “prepare to unload” really means. — Susan Liggett, Brecksville, Ohio

Runners-Up:

Single? — Rome Chelsi, Evergreen, Colorado

The summit lodge chili-eating contest ends in an unexpected photo finish. — Stuart Bohrer, Great Neck, New York
