Ski bum contest

I posted a blog referring to the Ski Bum contest sponsored by a consortium of BC ski areas a couple weeks back. The contest is a take on the widely successful campaign run by  Queensland Australia Tourism last winter. I just checked back on the Ski Bum site and am surprised to see only two entries thus far, and they are lame. Basically, they feature some simple ski footage of the person applying. I know there are some creative folks out there. Seems to me the idea is to sell yourself as the most deserving of the ski bum award (90 days of free skiing in BC). I am hoping for far more ceative works than the few thus far. My wife is threatening to create a vid of the haggard housewife/mom who’s husband is always off skiing. Deadline for entries is November 22 – one month from today. Don’t let my wife win. I am the ski bum in this family. Maybe in classic ski bum fashion, everyone is just waiting until 11:59pm on Nov. 22…
