Animal Snowcamp Video Competition

Love Snow? Go Eco!

So… fancy winning yourself an all-expenses week on the slopes riding with the Animal pro-snowboard team? And earning yourself some ‘good citizen’ points to boot?

Cooler and Animal have teamed up to create one very special competition for Cooler readers – all you have to do is get your creative juices flowing in front of the camera (or video phone) and send it to when you’re done.

This year the Animal Snowcamp is going green – each week-long camp is being held at the Boardnlodge luxury Ecolodge in Bourg St Maurice – base camp to high altitude resorts Les Arcs, Val d’Isere and Tignes to name but a few, meaning the group will get to pick the best spots for the conditions each day.

From park to powder, campers will be trying things they never knew they could do – all under the watchful eye of the likes of half-pipe master Dom Harington, Olympic contender Kate Foster and freestyle geniuses Johno Verity & Sonia Shaw. Each week is hosted by two of the team who are a valuable resource of insider tips, advice on equipment or just helping out with mastering a new move. This year the snowcamp is spreading the Animal love and opening it’s doors to skiiers who will be in the good hands of Ben ‘Bungle’ Hawker.

Sound good? Now it’s your turn:

All you have to do for a chance to win is put together a 30sec – 1 min clip of you, a snowboard or skis and something environmentally friendly – whether it be getting a ‘green’ message across, doing something to save the world with your skis or just finding a unique way to save our snow. We just ask that you make it entertaining, preferably funny, and upload send it to {encode=”[email protected]?subject=”Animal Snowcamp Competition” title=”[email protected]”} by January 30th 2009.

The prize will include a week at the Animal Snowcamp this March worth £1000, including full-board accommodation, lift pass and a return ticket to the camp by train (to keep up your eco credentials obviously).

For those of you not lucky enough to win, don’t panic – you can book yourself a place on the Animal Snowcamp – the camps are one week long and will run Saturday to Saturday from 24th January to 7th February, and then 14th March until 28th March 2009 and cost from £690 with a 5% discount for campers travelling to the week by train.
