#SEASONISNEAR Contest Winner – Week 3

I’m seeing lots of photos but most are of last season’s snow. If you have one of this season’s snow make sure you prove it by writing the date in the snow! You’ll increase your chances of winning big time this early in the season.

#SEASONISNEAR Contest Winner – Week 1

Hey shredders, Thanks to you we’ve gotten a great response so far for this ‘Season Is Near’ Photo contest, 96 photos in a little over a week. Let your eyeballs feast on the current entries tagged #SEASONISNEAR. It was a tough week for snow this early in the season and the rules said it had to be a photo taken this season. That said, choosing the proper winner according to the rules was easy since this was the only photo of snow this season! That said there were some amazing photos just not taken this season, so I’m sure the competition will heat up as the weather cools down. Thanks to all who tagged their photos and keep it up.

Week 1 Winner: Bazingabackwards with their photo taken at A-Basin September 17th 2012

Season Is Near – Instagram Photo Contest

Ride Instagram Photo Contest - Early Season


Announcing a new early season Instagram photo contest from your friends at Ride Snowboards. Now we all know the season is near but it’s not here yet. It’s 80 degrees in Seattle as I write this on September 17th! This is not normal. I like a late summer as much as the next guy, but it’s time for cold mornings and snow on the foothills, time for Fall to make an appearance!

To coax the season out of hiding, we’re going to give away a hat or beanie to the best snowboard related photo taken this season. Extra credit for on snow, tagged #SEASONISNEAR on Instagram every week. The contest ends when Mt Baker opens. Overall photo winner will win a 2013 Machete 155! No we don’t know when that is either but that means it’s on in the Pacific Northwest and that’s the only date that matters. Contest is for Northern Hemisphere only…

Contest Instructions:

  • – Follow Ride Snowboards on Instagram, Search user: RideSnowboardsCompany
  • – Take snowboard related photos with Instagram in snow. Must be Geo-tagged!
