In what is becoming a holiday tradition, Brimacombe ski area launched their second annual #SendMeSnow giveaway this week – offering one lucky household the promise of snow, just in time for the holidays! The winner of this one-of-a-kind contest will receive up to 25 yards of snow spread across their front lawn on December 23, 2015.
To enter this unique contest, snow-enthusiasts must visit sendmesnow.brimacombe.ca and share just a few contact details. To help plead their case, entrants must also explain, in 1,000 characters or less, why their green front yard is deserving of a “winter-vention”. The contest closes December 21, at 11:59 p.m. and the winner will be selected by a panel and notified on December 22.
“Mother Nature has been a little challenging this December,” says Mark Rutherford, General Manager, “but thanks to Brimacombe’s recent investment into some new, state-of-the-art snowmaking equipment, we’ve been able to make some piles of man-made snow each time the temperature has dropped below -2.6 C. The snow is then left in piles until we have enough to cover an entire run – but, we are more than happy to share just a dump truck full in exchange for the many smiles it will generate during the holidays!”
Brimacombe’s #SendMeSnow contest is open to the public and free to enter. The ski area promises there are no catches, but wants to remind entrants there are some quirky “Contest Rules, Facts and Not-So-Tiny Print” that they should be aware of. For example, entrants must either own their property or have written permission from the owner, as well as live within a 150 kilometre radius of the ski area. While complete details are available on the contest page, there’s one additional point they want to make clear.
“There are some potential side effects to this ‘Winter-vention’,” says Teresa McKenna, Marketing & Promotions Manager. “Based on our experience last winter, the winner and all parties present will most likely be overcome by the irresistible urge to smile, laugh and play like a 6-year-old, even if they are 10 times that age.”
Located less than 45 minutes east of Toronto, Brimacombe features 22 runs, 8 lifts and 2 terrain parks with 100% snowmaking capability over more than 68 acres of skiable terrain. Formally known as the Oshawa Ski Club, the ski area has been in operation since 1937 and is now one of Southern Ontario’s largest public ski areas. The facility draws over 150,000 skier and boarder visits from the GTA and surrounding areas annually.
