Skiing and Snowboarding

Win $100,000 for Your Ski Video

If any skiers ever needed motivation for learning video, they have it. On Thursday, Teton Gravity Research announced a new online video contest with a grand prize of $100,000, called The CoLab. Athletes will upload their videos to, users will vote on edits, and judges will award the winner a whole lot of money.

"We really wanted to make a statement with the prize money," TGR co-founder Steve Jones told Megan Michelson of "We want this contest to have as broad an appeal as possible so we put together a prize that was meaningful and was going get people excited about spending an entire season filming, editing and putting these segments together."

No start date has been set for the contest, which will begin sometime this year. Stay tuned to for details. For more on the contest, check out Michelson's ESPN article.
