The Ultimate Hook-Up Visits Boyne Mountain


February 21, 2006

Boyne Falls, Michigan (Boyne Mountain Press Release)—Salomon Oasis, the Ultimate Hook-Up will make it's thirteenth tour stop of the season March 4th and 5th at Boyne Mountain Resort. The 15-stop tour will bring a weekend full of free equipment demos, tons of giveaways and a terrain park jam session.

Participants who visit the Oasis Village at the base of Boyne can test-ride Salomon's 06' line-up of skis and snowboards and see how they perform on the hill. After the test-ride, guests will receive a $100 rebate on a pair of Salomon skis or a $75 rebate on a Salomon Snowboard, redeemable at their local ski shop. They can also pick up a Salomon Oasis Hook-Up Card and get the chance to win over $100,000 in prizes like Salomon apparel or a free pair of skis or snowboard. Oasis visitors can also win one of six grand prizes including a custom snowmobile from Salomon Snowboards or one of five trips for two to Europe courtesy of Ricola and the Swiss Tourism Commission. Prize drawings will take place each day of the tour at 3:00 pm in the Oasis Village in the main base area.

On Sunday from 11:00 to 1:00, Snowboard Magazine will "Get the Shot" at the terrain park at Boyne Mountain, supported by POWERade's new drink - Advance. The best shot of the day will be featured on Snowboard Magazine and Salomon Oasis websites.

Guests can also check out the latest from Salomon Oasis' cutting-edge partners like Saab, POWERade, Ricola, Men's Journal, American Express and other companies that cater to snow-riders worldwide. Refuel with a free sample of Advance by POWERade, refresh with free Ricola Breath Mints and pick up a complimentary Men's Journal magazine. Oasis visitors that reserve their demo with an American Express card will also get a free pair of Salomon gloves while supplies last.

"You wouldn't buy a car without taking it for a test-drive," explains Salomon Marketing Director Bo Johnson. "Why buy a pair of skis or a board without taking them for a test-ride? That's why we created Salomon Oasis. It's a great opportunity to test our entire line-up free of charge and win a ton of free products from Salomon and Oasis partners. It's the Ultimate Hook-Up."
