Explore the Nordic trails in British Columbia and win a prize in BC Nordic’s “Nuts for Nordic 2” photo contest. It’s simple: hit the trails, click, upload and vote for your favourite photos.
Running until March 31, the online photo contest gives outdoor enthusiasts a chance to win “The Ultimate Nordic Winter Getaway in BC” prize package. This year’s “Best Photo” prize winner will receive a $1,400 Nordic getaway in Whistler, BC. The photo that garners the “Most Votes” online will receive the “Yeti Snowshoe Prize Pack.” More than $3,000 worth of prizes are up for grabs.
Incredible cross-country ski terrain is found throughout the province, which in total has more than 1,000 km of world-class trails at designated ski areas. The unique destinations located throughout British Columbia have inspired these prize packages and are sure to inspire great photo opportunities too.
Outdoor enthusiasts are only required to get out there and enjoy Nordic trails anywhere in British Columbia and upload their cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, or backcountry skiing photos at http://photocontest.bcnordic.com/ to win prizes.
