Sugar Bowl launches contest to win a day skiing with Olympian, X Games’ Daron RahlvesBy: Special to the Journal
Sugar Bowl Resort is giving away an all-inclusive adventure with Sugar Bowl Ski Ambassador Daron Rahlves, one of the most versatile and accomplished U.S. skiers.
Contestants can win a full day of fun with Rahlves just by “liking” Sugar Bowl’s Facebook page, and entering their email address at www.facebook.com/sugarbowlresort. Once on Sugar Bowl’s Facebook page, just click the “Enter To Win” Sweepstakes tab near the top of the page.
“Any intermediate to advanced skier or snowboarder who dreams of having their best day in Tahoe should enter,” Rahlves said. “We’ll ski my favorite runs, exploring the mountain’s best spots.”
The winner will start the day off with Rahlves over breakfast at the Lodge, then head out onto the hill for some morning laps, followed by lunch at the Lodge Dining Room.
In the afternoon, head out of bounds for fresh tracks with one of our backcountry guides, then finish it all off at the Sierra Vista Bar for some après drinks and reminisce about a perfect day at Sugar Bowl.
“Skiing at Sugar Bowl is a different experience from most resorts in Tahoe,” Rahlves said. “It retains that connection to the history of skiing while serving up the terrain and snow conditions for a ‘best day of your life’ experience no matter what level skier or rider you are.”
The all-inclusive mountain adventure will be held Jan. 13, subject to winner’s availability.
Rahlves has won 12 World Cup Ski Races, had 28 World Cup podium finishes, seven US National Titles, is the 2011 World Champion in Super G, is an Olympian and X-Games medalist. He is the creator of the Rahlves Banzai Tour, which makes its grand finale stop at Sugar Bowl Ski Resort every year.
