It’s The Snow Gauge’s ‘Winter of your Content’ weekly giveaway!
To celebrate the Australian ski and snowboard season of 2016 we have some giveaways. Actually, we can do a little bit better than that for our loyal subscribers. How about a different giveaway every week during winter!
That’s right – starting June 13 (we just have to shake off the opening weekend party) we’ll go for 12 straight weeks with 12 different prizes!
And no, we are not talking sticker packs and a bum bag. How about airfares through Regional Express, gear from the likes of XTM, Giro, Sontimer, Avade and Quiksilver and stuff from Decathlon and Level Nine Sports? And that’s just a start …
All you have to do is subscribe to our newsletter to win. We will reward new and old subscribers alike so if you’ve signed up keeping getting your weekly dose of snow news from The Snow Gauge. If not, sign up and tell your friends to as well!
As skiing and snowboarding is a global sport and we appreciate our subscribers are too, there’s no problem if you live near Perisher, Portillo, Porters or Park City – we’ll get the prize to you.
We’ll have a new promotion starting every Monday and running through to Sunday. The weekly winner will be announced in the newsletter the following Monday.
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 …
This week’s prize is an absolute ripper.
While The Snow Gauge is a skier he dips his lid to the snowboarding brethren out there and has managed to get hold of a TechNine T-Money Tie Dye snowboard through our good friends at Wilderness Sea N’ Ski, Liverpool. The RRP is a lazy $549.
More on the board in a minute but I want to tell you a quick story about why you should be supporting Wilderness Sea N’ Ski if you live in Sydney’s west, south or anywhere else for that matter.
We’ve had the flights, punched out a bit of technical gear over the last month so- now for something completely different.
This week our good friends at Rossignol have provided us with a travel pack that includes a brief case boot bag and wheelie bag.
It’s as simple as subscribing to win at The Snow Gauge.
It’s a real pleasure to be able to giveaway an XTM jacket this week as well as offer up two pairs of gloves in The Snow Gauge’s bonus Instagram promotion.
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.
It’s been a cold winter so far. How cold? Temperatures tipping -8 at Thredbo Top Station some nights; days where it’s felt like -15 out on the hill with windchill; and it hasn’t busted 0 degrees at Mt Hotham since June 20.
These are the times you could use a heated Avade baselayer; not to mention those chilly overseas trips to Japan, Alberta and all those other cold arse places you head to during the northern winter.
Fortunately we have two of these beauties to give away this week for our subscribers.
Want to impress your better half but still reward yourself with a great prize this week?
Well, you can with a fantastic his and hers helmet and goggle prize from our good friends at Giro.
As always it’s as simple as signing up to our weekly newsletter (new and existing subscribers eligible) and reading on for a little more info here.
Look sharp. Win this Quiksilver jacket this week. All you have to do is subscribe to The Snow Gauge!
I’ll give you one good reason you have to subscribe to The Snow Gauge newsletter and win this super slick Quiksilver Raft jacket* this week.
I don’t have anything against the German supermarket chain. In fact I even wrote this story about them one time.
Sure, you go in to buy some bread and end up purchasing a marine safety kit and some traffic cones but that’s just part of the fun eh!
I think it’s great that you can get yourself some well-priced ski and snow kit (for one day a year or or until sold out) but ask yourself this: Do I really want to look like the 8,762 other people who have bought exactly the same thing when you get on the chairlift?
