Colorado to give free trips to 3 "snow virgins"
January 8, 2010
DENVER (AP) – People who have never experienced snow before are about to get their chance.
The Colorado Tourism Office plans to announce three winners from its “Snow at First Sight” contest on Friday in Denver.
Applicants were asked to submit videos explaining why they should win. The three winning snow virgins get an expenses-paid, three-month trip to Colorado from January through March. With help from local instructors and guides, contest winners will sample winter activities like snowmobiling, skiing, snowshoeing, dogsledding, the all-important apres ski cocktail hour, maybe even ice climbing – then Facebook, YouTube and Twitter about it.
Winners also will visit Colorado restaurants, hot springs and spas.
