The dust has finally settled from the 2012 film tour, and the grand prize winners have been drawn. Both films this year provided a whole slew of amazing giveaways, and hopefully you walked away with something fresh from our sponsors.
And the winners are…
Grand Prize: John from Bellingham, WA won the trip for two to ride at Squaw Valley. We connected with John just after his trip, and it sounds like it was a pretty epic adventure. “The bluebird conditions, variety of terrain and size of Squaw Valley were incredible! The mountain is so large that we were having trouble keeping track of which chair went where for the first two days! We're already planning a return trip for next year and will be bringing our friends from our home mountain, Mt. Baker. A big thanks from Belinda and I to Squaw Valley and TGR for making this amazing trip possible!”
Runner up: Karta from Boulder, CO is headed to Japan to shred powder courtesy of Cloudline Tours. After seeing the Japan segments from Further, she couldn’t have been happier, and we can’t wait to see the pictures.
The Dream Factory
Grand Prize: A heli-skiing trip for two courtesy of Alaska Heliskiing goes to Garrett from Colorado. Pretty sure we heard his screams of excitement all the way up in Jackson Hole. Garrett has yet to take the trip but we look forward to his report and some pictures.
Runner Up: Caroline from Kentucky scored the trip for two to Jackson Hole Mountain Resort. Unfortunately she is fresh off an ACL tear but Jackson Hole has been awesome in working with her to shift the prize to a summer filled with mountain biking and hiking rehab…Her dream of skiing Jackson’s legendary terrain is going to have to wait another year.
From all of us at Teton Gravity Research, THANK YOU for making the 2012 tour a memorable one. The tours reached close to 300 cities combined across the globe, and without your amazing support every year, it simply would not be possible. Enjoy the rest of your season, and see you next fall!
