Help a ski bum WIN the Ultimate Ski Bum Contest

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

 

I believe some of you have enjoyed my posts and videos in the past but I'm still sorry for this blatant self-promo. I've been extra quiet the past two seasons as I wasn't skiing much due to some family medical situations.
Please help me get back on my skis in style this season.
It takes LESS than 1 minute to VOTE FOR ME HERE Please.
The powder mecca corridor of southeastern BC's Kootenay Rockies or the Powder Highway region is holding the Ultimate Ski Bum Contest. 

To the winner; 
- season passes at legendary ski areas such as Revelstoke, Kicking Horse, Whitewater, RED, Fernie... 
- 4 days heliskiing 
- 8 days cat skiing 
- free accommodation 
- rental car 
- gas money 
Honest!

I'm currently homeless, recently separated, working part-time and I missed the vast majority of the past two season for reasons out of my control, so I think I'm perfect for this. I've lived in my van for 6 months at a time before but I think this Ski Bum contest is a little more comfy than that with the free accommodation and all.

What I need most is VOTES and COMMENTS on my entry at this site;

Powder Highway Ultimate SKi Bum Contest

My full pitch/blog is here with nice photos too; 

http://www.somegoodadventure.com/snowsports/powder-highway-ultimate-ski-bum-contest/

If I win I promise to share the photos and videos. It will almost be as good as being there.
 
Here is a little Best Of video I put together of some of my skiing between 2007 - 2009;
 

Thanks for anyone who can take the minute or less it takes.
cheers
Some Good

Well, not a huge response but thought I'd share the following anyway.

 

I'm a Top 10 Finalist. Woo Hoo!

 

To win I had to make a 90 second video about why I am the Ultimate Ski Bum.

 

This is the result which I'm pretty stoked about.

Ya gotta understand that a forum regular is also in the Top Ten, so the members are well aware of this contest and, in a sense, already "took sides".

I really like the 90 second video man.

That would be me wink.gif.  I owe a lot to the great support of this community for making it as far as I have!

 

Gregor, I watched your video last week right after you posted it & really enjoyed it!  I think we are both highly qualified ski bums & hopefully one of us wins.

 

 

Good Luck!

Of course, anyone wanting to prove their dedication to the Powder Highway will simply move to Nelson... duck.gif

Ahhh! I get it now. Even though I'm not a regular here I have shared some videos that were well received.

 

Regardless thanks for those that have checked it out. For the record I did spend a season in Nelson. One of the best winters of my life. So much snow.

 

And good luck Jim. cheers

BUMP. (sorry, the shame)

 

The contest is down to the last couple of days I would appreciate anyone checking out my video or even part of it. It is 90 seconds long, pretty funny and has some decent skiing clips.

 

Any views are MOST APPRECIATED!!! Thank you.
