Win The Ultimate Backcountry Adventure

Gear Giveaway, Blister Gear Review.

Blister has teamed up with one of our Recommended Shops, Alpenglow Sports, to offer the biggest weekly giveaway prize we’ve ever done — an all-expenses-paid trip to Alpenglow’s Mountain Festival in Lake Tahoe from February 17-25th, including a full backcountry ski setup.

In addition to airfare and lodging, the winner will receive a head-to-toe backcountry kit valued at over $7,500, including one pair of DPS skis, a pair of Scarpa or Tecnica ski boots, and Dynafit bindings. Alpenglow will round it out with backcountry touring clothing from Outdoor Research and Arc’teryx, Osprey Packs, and a Black Diamond avalanche safety kit including a beacon, shovel, and probe.

Not only is the gear prize huge, the Mountain Festival will be an amazing event. The nine-day festival is packed with over 70 individual events — everything from daily beginner and intermediate ski / splitboard tours, to avalanche education, snowshoeing, nordic skiing, yoga, and of course, nightlife.

And even if you don’t win the giveaway, you should do everything you can to make it out to Lake Tahoe for the Festival — it’s entirely free! You can check out our writeup for more info, you can view the full calendar of events here, and event registration is now live.
