My Blog__ best contest ever
last weekend one lucky girl won snowboard canada's best contest ever. the magazine runs it in every issue and it usually entails the winner receiving the rider's gear from head to toe. sounds pretty sweet right? well redbull decided to step it up a notch for my contest and hook the winner up with an all expense paid trip to whistler to shred with me. andrea from calgary, a 23 year old chartered account and shred addict, won the prize. most people would think that winning all of that is luck enough, but for andrea she's also blessed to have amazing friends. lindsay and brittany flew out from ontario, in the midst of a busy time at school, to spend the weekend with their best friend and get to shred some real mountains for a change. i have to say that i felt really lucky too, because it's not often that i get to shred with people who love it for simply what it is and who don't do it for a living. there's something to be said about watching a crew of girls shred together with their best friends having one of the best riding days of their lives. i was really happy to be apart of that, it made me remember why i snowboard every single day. not for a pay check, but because i love it.
i had one of my best days in a long time and i hope that andrea and her crew felt the same. thanks to everyone who made it possible, especially gabe at redbull canada and snowboard canada. also thanks to andrea, lindsay, brittany, joe, keelan, sara and scarth for being the best crew ever and to burton, etnies, dragon and coastal for hooking up the goods!
