The Snow Gauge may be a skier but it’s time to share the love around to our one-planked brethren.
This week, thanks to our good friends at Wilderness Sea ‘N Ski at Liverpool in Sydney, we have Technine Young Gun in a 155cm snowboard to giveaway.
It’s a cracker of a board and all you have to do is be a subscriber to be eligible to win!
It’s school holidays, so with the help of our friends at XTM, we’re (cue Robbie and Kylie) doin’ it for the kids.
It’s a real pleasure to be able to give away a full kit worth $400 for your little or not so little one. As long as they wear kids sizes we’ll get your boy or girl covered from top to bottom!
The goods are great (read on for a little more detail) but the fact it’s direct from an Aussie company should make you feel warm and fuzzier still.
And not just any Australian company but one that has a significant track record in helping our athletes, the environment and those less fortunate than most of us who get to enjoy skiing and snowboarding.
Next to ski boots I reckon the most important items of snow gear are your baselayers.
If you don’t know by now, a cotton t-shirt and some footy socks won’t cut it.
You need to go quality, you need to go Merino Wool and you need to go Le Bent.
Just lucky we’ve got a kit including baselayer crew, socks and balaclava to give away this week eh?
It’s usually just outside Canberra on the way back from a two or three day trip to the snow that I ask myself the question: why didn’t I fly?
While I have done more than my share of road trips to both the NSW Snowy Mountains and Victorian Alps from Sydney there is something about flying that sits rather nicely with me.
It’s something to do with not feeling exhausted (there or on the way back), cutting a good chunk out of your travel time and not having to deal with thousands of people in their cars who have exactly the same idea of having a cheeky few days down the snow.
In celebration of such things our good friends at Regional Expresss (REX) have ponied up with four return airfares – two each from Sydney to Cooma and another two from Melbourne to Albury!
With the arrival of spring we’ve got the perfect crossover package this week as the final prize in our three months of giveaways.
A great supportive underlay for late season riding and for many other sports, we have two pairs of CW-X conditioning compression shorts (his and hers) up for grabs.
And after a long spring session on the slopes we also have some insanely comfortable OOFOS impact absorbing thongs to get around the chalet in.
We’ve had some great giveaways over the past two and a bit months but this week we really do have a beauty.
It’s a sweet Tom Tom Bandit action camera – perfect for capturing video and stills at the snow.
It’s a serious unit – but also seriously easy to use. So subscribe this week for you chance to win and read a little more about the Bandit …
