The phrase “It depends on your point of view” has no greater meaning that at Snowbird Ski and Summer Resort this winter.
The Utah resort has launched their Local Hero POV Video Contest, which challenges amateur videographers from all over the world to shoot the best video while skiing or snowboarding.
Winners get a trip for two to Snowbird for five days on the mountain, four nights at the Cliff Lodge, one early tram ride, a day of helicopter skiing and other goodies. Winners will be awarded in both skiing and snowboarding categories.
Videos can be shot anywhere “on the planet at any time in history,” according to a Snowbird press release, but must be in POV format and less than three minutes long. Editing is permitted.
The deadline is 5 p.m. EST, Dec. 31. To enter, submit the video to Snowbird’s Local Hero Facebook page. The page can be found at here, and the contest entry can be brought up by clicking the “Local Hero” tab on the left side of the screen.
Four videos in each category will be selected according to the number of “likes” they attract on the Facebook page. The grand prize winner in the ski category will be chosen by the Powder Magazine editorial staff, and the Grand Prize winner in the snowboard category will be chosen by the Snowboarder Magazine editorial staff. Both magazines join Snowbird, The North Face and Wasatch Powderbird Guides as sponsors of the contest.
