It’s spring time. The air is getting warmer, the sun shines a bit longer, the hits are a little softer and you can dump a few more layers as you slide through the slush. As part of this annual ritual, we see the usual pond skimming comps, bikini-clad skier chicks and serious keg parties on the deck of the lodge.
Now we can add a new trend to the mix. Spring has now become the season of free contests: Win a free pass, win a VIP trip to a contest, win a free snowboard, win some skate shoes (well you get the picture).
The combination of overstocked inventory, hay fever and some serious good vibes results in an onslaught of ocular opportunity for you. Since we’re good Samaritans here at 5ones, we wanted to give you a quick list of spots for free loot.
Stoked, a NY and LA based non-profit that promotes board sports to at-risk youth through mentoring, coaching and shredding. They’re raffling off an Autographed Roxy Ally Snowboard. Tickets are $5 each. The board is signed by Roxy Team Riders: Amber Stackhouse, Erin Comstock, Torah Bright, Alexis Waite, and Kjersti Buaas. You can find more details at: http://www.stoked.org/wordpress/2009/04/06/roxy-raffle/
South of the North
Jonny at South of the North is having an Easter Egg hunt in the DC area for free skate shoes from Vans, Nike SB and DC. Who doesn’t like free skate shoes? Plus he’s having a Twitter-based contest for those of you not in the DC area. http://www.twitter.com/southofthenorth
Sierra Snowboard x Mountain Dew
Mega-online snowboard store, Sierra Snowboard and Mountain Dew’s new flavor, Voltage are offering a free snowboard and a bunch of schwag to the best video that displays “Snowboard Virgins” explaining different snowboard slang. Oh and I’m helping spread the word. If you mention 5ones.com in your entry, you’ll also be in the running for a free Analog sample jacket. Shameless plug – check.
Local East Coast hill and home of the Winter Dew Tour, Mt Snow, is offering a free season’s pass for next season if you find the Golden Egg hidden on the hill this weekend for Easter.
If I missed any, please feel free to add them in the comments section. Happy Spring time shredding and good luck winning some free sick gear.
