Congratulations to Mrs. Sterling Payne of Snellville, Georgia as she is the winner of TRIP #7 of our Season Long Ski Vacation Giveaway!  We have ONE more to give away and we’ll be doing that tomorrow.  When we attempted to contact Sterling, her husband Michael answered the phone and after some introductions said, "Are you the guys that talk about all of the ski areas?"  He then proceeded to tell us that they had chosen the resort that they skied at before by using our website (that resort was Cataloochee) and then Michael told me that Sterling wasn’t home.  He did call her at work, put us together and voila we have another winner!

Sterling won 4 days and 3 nights free accommodations at Happy Times Vacation Rental up on Sever Devils, and free lift passes to ski at Hawksnest Resort and free Ski Equipment from Extreme Snowboard & Skis.  Congratulations to her and thanks again to the Mike and Lynn Graham of At Your Wits End Vacation Rentals in between Boone and Blowing Rock for providing the contest giveaway.  Thanks too to Hawksnest Ski Resort and the great staff at Extreme Snowboards and Skis in Banner Elk for providing the free equipment rentals.

We’ve given away 319 free lift tickets this season and more than $17,000 worth of free skiing, free ski equipment and free accommodations…and we’re still not finished!  We have one more free vacation to giveaway, which we will do tomorrow and we have a “few” more free ski passes to giveaway and we will do that this week as well.

We know that there’s some of you waiting for us to post an “ENTER NOW” message, but for THIS lift ticket giveaway, we are simply going to pick our winners at random from those that have entered in the last week via the contest page.  So if you have not entered, go there now and enter…and good luck!

Until Next Time!
