The Adventure Life (www.theadventurelife.org), the online adventure magazine, Wagner Custom Skis (www.wagnerskis.com), the Telluride, Colorado-based leader in custom ski-fitting science, and Visit Telluride (www.visitteulluride.com) today announced the winner of the season-long “Share Your Ski Stoke” contest. Ryan Hollington of Albuquerque, New Mexico, will be stoked to receive a trip for two to Telluride, Colorado - complete with skiing and lodging compliments of Telluride Ski Resort, a pair of Wagner Custom skis designed and built specifically for him, plus a day of helicopter skiing with Telluride HeliTrax.

“The online space has become contest-ridden, so we wanted to raise the bar and see just how creative and inspired people could be when asked to simply share their passion for skiing,” said Steve Casimiro, editor of The Adventure Life. “This contest offered a premium reward for the most creative, passionate, and stoke-filled entry. Ryan put together a video with music he composed and played, helmet-cam film from Silverton Mountain that he shot, and a personal narrative that he wrote and dubbed.”

The contest was promoted through online outlets, social media, and social networking platforms, with entries posted exclusively on TheAdventureLife.org. Airfare, lodging, and lift ticket package were generously provided by the Telluride Tourism Board (www.visittelluride.com) and Telluride Ski Resort (www.tellurideskiresort.com).
