The Next Great Video Contest

Outside's long reads email newsletter features our strongest writing, most ambitious reporting, and award-winning storytelling about the outdoors. Sign up today.

'Tis the season of video contests, and the most entertaining one we've found so far is the Colorado Snow at First Sight Contest. The prize is three months of all-expense-paid skiing, snowboarding, sledding, ski-bar carousing, snowball-throwing, and hot tubbing in Colorado, but it's only open to complete snow newbies. Know any Samoans or Texans*? Give them a video camera so they can plead their case in 60 seconds or less. Otherwise go here and vote on which video is the least (or maybe the most?) ridiculous.

*Extra points for cute girls apparently.
