West 49 Contestant Wins a Brand New Mitsubishi!
Big White Ski Resort
March 27, 2011
It’s spring but it’s still winter at Big White! Spring break is in full swing and the mountain has hosted a big weekend of events. The retail chain store West 49 brought up 6 contestants who were chosen from an online contest for a weekend in our winter wonderland of snowboarding and fun. Billabong set them up with head to toe gear, and the grand prize was a 2011 Mitsubishi RVR! They had to hang out all weekend waiting until Sunday for the chance to win the vehicle. Katelyn Fagan, one of the contestants said, “I’m so excited I feel sick! My stomach is in knots!”
The Mitsubishi waited in the center of the village Sunday while the contestants each chose a watch case. One of the 6 cases had a key, while the rest had Life Saver candies, which were opened one at a time. The first 2 cases were opened to reveal life savers. Jennifer Ridsdale, from Windsor, Ontario was third to open her case and it held the key! She screamed with excitement and jumped around then got in and started up her brand new ride.
Cam Thomson, West 49 Promotions and special events manager commented, “12,000 people entered online to have a chance to be here and 6 were chosen to come to Big White, and Jenni won the car. The contestants loved Big White and “It’s the snow” is definitely a perfect slogan for this mountain.”
