ZEAL Optics Announces Hometown Heroes Contest

March 1, 2016

Explore Our Ski & Snowboard Ambassadors’ Home Resorts & Celebrate Yours To Win A Colorado Cat Trip For Two!

Boulder, Colorado — March 1, 2016 — ZEAL Optics is teaming up with our top ski and snowboard ambassadors for an amazing contest, giving our community the chance to win a cat trip to the Colorado Rockies!

As skiers and snowboarders, we have deep allegiances to our home mountains and all they offer. They shape our riding, our style, our friends and our lives. That’s a huge part of why ZEAL is proudly based in the Rocky Mountains, with a world of options in its backyard.

ZEAL has partnered with a select crew of Ambassadors including DCP, Austen Sweetin, Kimmy Fasani, Fredi Kalbermatten, Banks Gilberti, Mike Henitiuk, Forrest Shearer and Kjersti Buaas, to celebrate their hometown hills and why they’ve put down roots there. From the craggy Alps, to the Wasatch sidecountry, our skiers and riders will take you behind the scenes of their stomping grounds.

Each week, ZEAL will share what makes its Ambassadors’ home mountains amazing , while inspiring community members to celebrate their home resorts and be entered to win a three-day trip to Colorado next season. The Colorado getaway will include lodging, lift tickets, Woodward Barn Passes from Woodward At Copper Mountain and a cat trip for two from Weston Snowboards.

To enter, share what makes your home mountain amazing and get your friends to vote your entry up for a chance to win!

The contest kicks off today with a profile of DCP and his home resort of Whistler, to get the community fired up.
