One week to rule them all. ESPN’s Winter X Games 14 comes to Aspen/Snowmass this week (January 28-31). And with a group of newly appointed Olympians, insane features on Buttermilk Mountain, a super stacked lineup of musicians and loads of swag to be given away, there is no doubt this year will be the biggest yet.
Big tricks, big parties, big prizes. Among them, Qittle(TM) is giving away two (2) O-matic snowboards. One board will be given away as part of Qittle’s Swag Friday prizes, where one winner is chosen from those who have entered into Qittle’s “Live the Dream” contest. The ultimate winner of the “Live the Dream” contest will win a year living in Aspen/Snowmass, however there are weekly winners on each of the Swag Fridays. (For details, go to www.livethedreamaspensnowmass.com)
Qittle will also give out another O-matic board on the weekend through a text to win contest whereby people can enter by texting DREAM to 26469, standard carrier rates may apply. Stay tuned for details of where and when the winner will be announced!
Co-founded by pro snowboarders Todd Richards and Tara Dakides and engineer Jason Kanes, O-matic snowboards (www.omaticsnowboards.com) focuses on “more bang for your buck” and trying to make snowboarding fun for everyone. And it certainly seems to have worked for one of their team riders, Louie Vito (www.louievito.com).
Louie, 21, has just been named one of three U.S. riders going to the Winter Olympics in Vancouver in February, along with Shaun White and Scotty Lago. Louie is also a veteran of this past season’s Dancing with the Stars program on ABC and a pretty cool guy to boot. But before he heads to Canada…Louie will be throwing down double corks on his O-matic board this week in the X Games super pipe.
Shout out to O-matic for providing Qittle awesome boards to give away, to Louie Vito for good times in X Games and Olympics and to Aspen/Snowmass for being an Xcellent place to live, play, work and visit!
