The temperature has been dropping, it's getting darker earlier, and snowguns are blasting at your local mountain. The wait is over. After a long summer season, it's finally time to dig out your gear, dust off your snowboard, and slip on the boots that provide that particular post-session stench. It's time to head to the hills.
Regardless if in your hometown the first storm has hit, lifts have started turning, or you're still loading ice rink snow into the back of a pick-up in order to session backyard rails, the season is officially on and there's no better way to mark the advent of a new winter with a fresh set up and a grip of new gear to enhance your on hill experience.
In celebration of winter 2014, SNOWBOARDER Magazine and Rome Snowboards are teaming up to give one lucky shred all the gear they need to start the season off right in an early season photo contest where you can share what "THE WAIT IS OVER" means to you.
Here's how to enter:
1. Like Rome Snowboards on Facebook
2. Choose your photo that best illustrates what "The Wait Is Over" means to you
3. Upload your photo directly to the SNOWBOARDER Magazine x Rome SDS Facebook contest page OR tag your Instagram photo #waitisover2013 @romesnowboards @snowboardermag (Instagram account must be public and tags must be in the photo caption, not comments). You must enter your photo between November 15th – December 1st.
4. Beginning on December 2nd vote for your favorite photos on the Facebook contest page. When voting is completed on December 8th, the crew at Rome SDS will take the top five user-picked photos and pick one of them to win the grand prize.
