Backcountry Snowcats Launches ‘Name That Trail’ Contest

COME UP WITH THE WINNING NAME FOR THEIR EPIC 3000FT UNNAMED LINE, WIN A WEEKEND CAT SKIING/BOARDING

WHISTLER, BC, January 9, 2008 – Just 2 years young, Backcountry Snowcats, located on the Hurley Pass north of Pemberton and south of the cult-classic snowmobiling hub of Bralorne, has more epic ski & snowboard terrain than they know what to do with. New cat roads and new lines are prepped every year, this year being no exception. With over 15,000 acres of alpine bowls, chutes, powdery pillows, glades, and burnt-tree badlands to explore in Backcountry Snowcats' tenure, they haven't gotten around to naming everything let alone riding it all.

They want your help, and you want a free cat skiing trip. Sound like a fair trade?

Enter the contest and come up with a name for one of the new lines, and if your line name is chosen, you win a weekend at Backcountry Snowcats to shred your new line, and many, many others. First explore http://www.snowcats.ca to learn about the zone and the company, then come up with a name that best suites this unnamed line. It's that easy.

Someone is going to score a weekend worth $898 CAD, with 2 nights at the Hurley Mountain Lodge, snowmobile or Snow Cat rides to and from Pemberton, 2 days cat skiing/riding, and hearty catered meals during your stay.

The unnamed line is one of several mouth-watering, feature-filled, powdery, 3000 ft lines in the North Ridge zone. Topping out at 2300m with views of Bralorne 20km away, it drops for a 1000m (3300ft) descent of epic skiing and riding. Weave the glades, slash the gully walls, or just point it down the center. If this line doesn’t get your heart pumping, you’re already dead.

Come up with a clever name that's as unique as the terrain, and if it’s chosen, you win a cat skiing trip. If you don't win, go anyways. You won’t regret it.
