June 13 – HAMPTON, NH: SASS Global Travel announces the launch of their summer Facebook contest, “Why I Love My Mountain.” Contestants will be asked to write a 500-word maximum essay about why they love riding their home mountain. Taking place on and simultaneously hosted on a number of SGT partner Facebook pages, the contest will award the writing talent of passionate skiers and riders with prizes from RED/Anon, Contour, and Dakine.

Snow, Big Bolder Park, Sugarbowl, Buckmans, Mountain Weekly, Seshday, RipperZ, East Coast Alpine, Contour, Anon, British Winter Athletes, and Exsic. “The snow may be gone but the itch to shred is still there and we wanted to find a way to connect with our pass holders during the summer,” said John McColly, Vice President of Sales & Marketing at Mountain High Resort.

“Whether or not people are thinking about extending their winter with us in Argentina, we wanted to celebrate this past epic winter, interact more with our audience, and give away some great prizes,” said SGT’s Director of Communications, Ryan Dunfee. The Grand Prize Winner will be walking away with a RED helmet, a pair of Anon goggles, Dakine backpack and gloves, and a Contour + camera.
