One lucky skier or snowboarder winner of the ‘I want to be the Snow Bum' contest will spend three months of the coming ski season at the leading Canadian ski area, skiing, snowboarding, tubing, snowmobiling or even dog sledding.
The competition winner will be provided with a season's pass for the mountains, food vouchers, accommodation in a number of Sun Peak's finest hotels, plus equipment and outerwear. The winner will also enjoy a wide range of additional perks including VIP and backstage passes to resort events and functions.
"What could be better than riding every day and living on a mountain in a world class village," says Christopher Nicolson, President of Tourism Sun Peaks. "People travel from all over the world for a week at Sun Peaks. This winner will live and ski or board the whole winter...for free!"
Potential snow bums can win this opportunity to shred all winter by simply submitting a 60-second video showcasing their wit, charisma, love of the mountains, and the ability to make the most of this spectacular adventure. The competition is open to any intermediate skier or snowboarder over 19 years, anywhere in the world.
In return for all the snow, accommodation, gear, food and airfare, the winner will be expected to keep the rest of the envious world updated on their activities through social media avenues such as Facebook, Twitter and the official blog on www.snowbumcanada.com.
Videos should be submitted to www.snowbumcanada.com by Sunday, November 15. Sun Peaks' judges will announce finalists on November 19, who will undergo an interview and written-essay assessment.
The winner will be announced December 1 and begin their three month stay on January 4, 2010. Contestants must be at least 19 years or older and have an applicable visa for the duration of their stay if they are from outside Canada.
