Rock/Creek, a leading specialty outdoor clothing and gear retailer, has just launched a 5-day ski trip giveaway to Jackson Hole, Wyoming with one of their top vendors, Marmot. The prize package includes round-trip airfare for two with American Airlines from the closest major airport, 5 nights of lodging and two lift tickets for five days. In addition, the winner will get a Marmot ski jacket and pants worth $500 to rock on the slopes. Interested parties can sign up now at http://www.rockcreek.com/win between now and January 28th.

Rock/Creek’s marketing director, Mark McKnight, explains: “In 2014, Jackson Hole was recognized as the No.1 overall resort by SKI Magazine readers. This is a trip that I’d love to take, but the guys at Marmot told me I’d have to give it away to a customer.”

Jackson Hole Giveaway from Rock/Creek and Marmot

Skiers and snowboarders alike will find some of the longest runs in the US, along with a fantastic variety of terrain from groomers and terrain parks to awesome tree skiing and sidecountry. The town of Jackson Hole, where the winners will be staying, has a western flair and a charm all its own.

When traveling across the country for a ski or snowboard vacation, a crucial factor in choosing the ski resort is fast and easy access. The airport is only 35 minutes away from the resort, and snow-hungry skiers fly in non-stop from 12 major airports including Atlanta, New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Houston, Newark, Denver, Minneapolis, Seattle and Salt Lake City.

The Chattanooga Ski Club offers about four skiing trips each year to its 250 members, mostly to western ski areas, but also to Europe. Their last trip to Jackson Hole was four seasons ago, but the resort is on their hot list for upcoming trips in 2015.

Mike Hood, Chattanooga Ski Club member, went to Jackson Hole on his first trip out west, and loved the trip: “The size of those mountains is an awesome sight,” he says. “So many trails to ski on, never a lift line and the view from the top was breathtaking.” He adds this tip for insiders: “Go on a side trip to Yellowstone National Park to ride snowmobiles.”

There is plenty to do in Jackson Hole besides enjoying an amazing ski resort. John Neblett, Chattanooga Ski Club member, admits it’s “a grand destination for winter and summer activities. The glaciers and lakes are magnificent.” Rock/Creek and Marmot have partnered with RootsRated.com to highlight places to hike, run, paddle, bike & climb around the town of Jackson Hole. The company is a local Chattanooga startup dedicated to providing information to everyone on the best outdoor experiences, curated by in-the-know locals.

To enter the giveaway for a 5-day winter trip for two to Jackson Hole, sign up with at http://www.rockcreek.com/win. Giveaway ends on January 28th; the winner will be drawn on or around January 29th, 2014 and contacted via email.
