To promote this year’s upcoming Learn to Ski and Snowboard Month, all six winter sports rep associations have collaborated to create prizes for the Bring a Friend Challenge. The prizes include two back pack prize packages filled with accessory items for January’s weekly challenge drawings. Three grand prizes will be awarded in March when the challenge concludes. To win these prizes, participants must take part in the Bring a Friend Challenge by introducing a newbie to their local resort and helping them sign up for lessons.

In the spirit of collaboration for Learn to Ski and Snowboard Month and the new Bring a Friend Challenge, all six winter sports rep associations have partnered to create two Back Pack prize packages filled with accessory items for the weekly Challenge drawings that start the first week in January. Prizes are being offered among those who bring a friend to any local ski/snowboard area this winter and help newcomers sign up for lessons from professional instructors.
The Eastern Winter Reps Association (EWSRA), the New England Winter Sports Reps (NEWSR), the Western Winter Sports Reps Association (WWSRA), the Southeastern Sports Reps Association (SSRA), the Midwestern Winter Sports Reps Association (MWSRA) and the Midwestern Reps Association (MRA) organized the “Bring a Friend Goodie Back Packs”. Brands associated with the “Goodie Back Packs” include Bolle, Burton, Coldpruf, Giro, Ibex, Icebreaker, Jansport, Janus, Manzella, Nils, Rocky Mountain Sunscreen, Swany, Turtle Fur and Wigwam. A Bring a Friend T-Shirt also is included.
“We wanted to do something as a group to support the goals of Bring a Friend and Learn to Ski and Snowboard Month,” said Linda Irvin, executive director for EWSRA. Irvin worked with the various associations to assemble the prizes. Other brands that allocated prizes for the Challenge include HEAD Winter Sports, Rossignol, Boulder Gear, RAMP, Swany, Celsius, Transworld Snowboarding and SKI magazine. Retailer skis.com and snowboards.org also are providing a pair of Salomon skis and a Firefly snowboard.
Three Grand Prize trips will be awarded on March 17, 2013 when the Challenge concludes. Trips are to Sun Valley (ID); Deer Valley, Park City and The Canyons (UT) and Smugglers’ Notch (VT). Trips are for the 2013-14 season.
