Dynastar wants to send skiers to UT. This contest flies you and a friend to SLC and gives you a four pack lift ticket at the Wasatch resort of your choice. A photographer will follow you around while you ski your new skis. Check you out. 

Evo & Capita

This contest sends you to Austria. You stay for six nights and get four days of lift tickets. You also get to tour the Capita Mothership- which may or may not go to space

Freeskier & Lake Tahoe

It's going to dump again at Tahoe. Thank goodness- they deserve it. Win a three day trip to Tahoe and ride any resort you want!

Mountain Collective

The Mountain Collective is back! The price has gone up a bit- now it's $499, but with lift tickets being $100 or more a day it could be the best option. Here's a reminder of what comes with The Mountain Collective: 2 days at Sun Valley (ID), 2 days at Snowbird (UT), 2 days at Lake Louise/ Sunshine Village (AB), 2 days at Aspen (CO), 2 days at Jackson (WY), 2 days at Mammoth (CA), 2 days at Squaw (CA), 2 days at Taos (NM), 2 days at Thredbo (NSW), and 2 days at Whistler (BC). If you got in your van for the ultimate road trip and took advantage of all of these days (except for Australia) you would only be paying $28 a day. 

POW (Protect Our Winters)

It's a POW party this Wednesday at Snowbird. There will be a free bus from the valley run by the Utah Transit Authority. If you carpool to the hill then you get preferred parking and POW swag. There will also be an actual party on the deck from 2 PM- 4 PM with great POW giveaways. Save our snow!

Win a five night trip to Aspen. This trip comes with lift tickets for two for four days and lodging. Get it!


If you have a never ever or a beginner in your life, this might be the way to go. Three lessons and rental gear are $129 for participating Vermont resorts . That's $43 a day- I don't even think you can rent gear for that tiny amount!  

Snowbomb (CA)

The Platinum Pass is on for sale for $99 (instead of $200) and if you buy more than one, the pass is $84. This sale is good until 1/31/16 when you use the promo code BLUEBIRDS. The Platinum Pass is good for four lift tickets- you pick whether you want to ride at Bear Valley, China Peak, Homewood, or Mt. Rose. These lift tickets have blackout dates and are never good on Saturday. You also get a two night stay at Grand Sierra Resort and Casino and additional discounts on other lift tickets. This pass pays for itself after the first day. 

Whitefish (MT)

If you're having problems finding a MLK weekend deal, try Whitefish. If you book a two night stay with lift tickets you get the third night and day for free. If you stay longer it's 30% off of lodging and lift tickets. Mmmmmmm Montana powder. 

Yellowstone Country Montana

Win a trip for four to Montana's part of Yellowstone. This includes a week of sled skiing. Oh yeah.
